Gaming systems are on sale for 20% off the original price (g), which can be expressed with the function p(g) = 0.8g. Local taxes are an additional 12% of the discounted price (p), which can be expressed with the function c(p) = 1.12p. Using this information, which of the following represents the final price of a gaming system with the discount and taxes applied?
c(p) + p(g) = 1.92g
c[p(g)] = 0.896g
g[c(p)] = 1.92p
c(p) ⋅ p(g) = 0.896pg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1by the way this is the way I figured it out... we are given let's say g g is on sale for 20$ off the original price so that is g  g(.2) which is g(1.2)=g(.8) Ok now this is the price of the game .8g before going into taxes taxes is 12% you have to paid for the game plus taxes so (.8g)+(.8g)*.12 factoring (.8g)(1+.12)=.8g(1.12) and then you can do .8 * 1.12 to simplify further
