let's leave the tax calculations aside for a minute, and just look at the cost of the items if he ordered 2 entries at 16.99 each, how much did he pay for the entries?

good so far! however, we're not finished yet he paid 51.26 for the items, but he also paid a 7% tax and a 20% gratuity the 7% tax is equal to (0.07)*(cost of the items) how much is the tax?

oh, whoops, sorry, I forgot that gratuity gets calculated after tax... so, let's add the cost of the items + tax cost of the items = 51.26 tax = 3.60 let's add these together to get 54.86, with me so far?

yea
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
alright, gratuity = 0.20*(54.86) = 10.972 gratuity + total cost = 10.972 + 54.86 = $65.82 (rounded)
