@jim_thompson5910 my sale tax is 1.74

40%*42.99-17.19 =24.99 then I find t

7% of 24.99

hopefully you're seeing how I'm getting all this?

yes I do

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

yeah true

but I'm still not sure if $42.99 is the original cost or the reduced cost

ok so if $42.99 is the original price before the 40% reduction then
60% of 42.99 = 0.60*42.99 = ??

71.65

.6*42.99 = 25.794

25.79

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

1.81

good

23.98 he paid for tickets

total price = (price after reduction) + (tax)

27.60

yes

thanks for your help

no problem
