Is the sales tax before or after the discount?
I'm assuming after, so you would do y minus the 18% off, plus 8% of the discounted price.
To calculate the discounted price, you would do the original price, y, minus 18% of y.
can you explain how you get the answer in steps please :) @StudyGurl14 @Michele_Laino @welshfella
Okay, so you have the item at the original price, y. Correct? Then it's on sale for 18% off. So you do 18% times y to get how much money off of the price. Then to find the actual discounted price, you do the original price minus the discount, which is \(y-(18\%)y\)
but can you write it like this so i understand it better... please thx :) 1... 2...
Then, you have to add sales tax, which is 8%. So, you take that expression up there, multiply it by 8% to find the amount of the tax, which you then add to the expression to find the total amount paid.
1. Find discount (amount off): (18%)y 2. Simplify: 0.18y You with me so far?
yea.. continue :) @StudyGurl14 but can you also like answer it as your going :)
3. Next, find the discounted price. Original Price - discount off = y - 0.18y Which equals what?
but can you add everything in.. like give me the complete answers in the steps please :)
can we start from step 1 again please @StudyGurl14 ill do it with you
I don't understand what you want...? Step 1: Find discount (amount off of original price)
what i mean is to like not add the parentheses for example... dont do this: (amount off of original price) actually put the answer .. you get me?
I did. I put this --> (18%)y
that's the answer to step 1
exactly so whats step 1 completely
Um...? Like this? 1: (18%)y
so this is step 1: Find discount ( 18%)y
Okay....the parenthesis is just to further clarify. Sorry if it confused you. 1: Find discount - (18%)y 2: Simplify: 0.18y 3. Find discounted price - y - 0.18y 4: Simplify: 0.82y OK?
5: Find sales tax: (8%)(0.82)y 6. Simplify: (0.08)(0.82)y
7: Simplify: 0.0656y 8. Find total paid: 0.82y + 0.0656y 9: Simplify: 0.8856y
is step 9 the final answer?
ok and are you sure its correct?
ok thanks i have some more problems .. ill tag you :)
can i have a medal please?
