@jim_thompson5910 my sale tax is 1.74
40%*42.99-17.19 =24.99 then I find t
7% of 24.99
x = original price of ticket 40% off means he pays 60% of the full price, so 0.60x 7% tax means he has to add an additional 0.07*(0.60x) = 0.042x to the final cost so the total cost is 0.60x+0.042x = 0.642x
hopefully you're seeing how I'm getting all this?
yes I do
"The price of an all-access ticket to the fair is $42.99 before tax" so ignore the tax part and just focus on 0.60x
0.60x = 42.99 x = ???
I was thinking about the reduce
hmm I'm not sure if $42.99 is the price BEFORE the 40% reduction? or AFTER the 40% reduction?
that was confusing
yeah I'm stuck too
guess tax is always paid last
but I'm still not sure if $42.99 is the original cost or the reduced cost
after re-reading i think its the original and just to show how they arrive at it base on the calculation
ok so if $42.99 is the original price before the 40% reduction then 60% of 42.99 = 0.60*42.99 = ??
.6*42.99 = 25.794
original price before reduction = $42.99 price after reduction = $25.79
now take 7% of that reduced price to find how much tax is paid
23.98 he paid for tickets
total price = (price after reduction) + (tax)
thanks for your help
