Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x = 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so if $42.99 is the original price before the 40% reduction then 60% of 42.99 = 0.60*42.99 = ??
