Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think ...your item total cost of your item (c) is being discounted by 5%.....because the .07 is your 7% sales tax.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1c  .05c is the discount price....then you would multiply that by the .07 for the sales tax

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Example... your item (c) costs $100. And you get a discount of 5% off of the item .07(c  .05c) = .07 (100  .05(100) = .07 (100  5) = .07 (95)  that 95 is the price of the item with the 5% discount 6.65  and this would be the sales tax
