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?

- anonymous

33.98

- Vocaloid

great!
he ordered 2 drinks at 2.30 each, how much did he pay for the drinks?

great!
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?

- anonymous

51.26

- Vocaloid

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?

- anonymous

3.60 i rounded

- Vocaloid

good!
now, the 20% gratuity = (0.20)*(cost of the items)
what is the gratuity?

- anonymous

.71764

- anonymous

or do you do the orginal cost then multiply

- anonymous

10.30

- Vocaloid

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?

- anonymous

yea

- Vocaloid

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

- Vocaloid

that should be our final answer, sorry for the confusion > >
