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?
he ordered 2 drinks at 2.30 each, how much did he pay for the drinks?
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
so, he paid 4.60 for the drinks, 33.98 for the entries. he also bought 1 appetizer for 7.39 and 1 dessert for 5.29, how much did he pay for all these items?
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?
3.60 i rounded
now, the 20% gratuity = (0.20)*(cost of the items)
what is the gratuity?
or do you do the orginal cost then multiply
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?
