A store offers a 15% discount on all items in the store during a sale. All store employees get an additional 10% employee discount. In the equation below, C represents the cost of an item for an employee including tax and x represents the original price of the item:
C = 0.765x + 0.06(0.765x)
Chris is an employee at the store. He plans to buy a coat during the sale. The price of the coat before the discount is $100. How much will Chris pay for the coat during the sale? Remember, do not include the $ symbol.

all you need to do is let x = 100 and calculate
0.765x + 0.06(0.765x)
wait what i dont get that
x = 100
0.765*x + 0.06*(0.765)*x = ___
fill in the blank
that isn't the correct answer, please try one more time
we can split the problem into two parts:
you found the first part, which is 76.5
now find the second part: 0.06*(0.765)*x = ?
not quite, try one more time... remember that x = 100
0.06*(0.765)*x = ?
right, now we add parts 1 and 2 together
76.5 + 4.59 = ?
