3 cases of fresh apples that cost \$21.95 per case with 20% off and a 7.5% sales tax Figure out the total cost before the discount: Total Cost before discount = Cases * Price per case Total Cost before discount = 3 cases * \$21.95 per case Total Cost before discount = \$65.85 Now, find the discounted value of the apples: Discounted Apple Price = Total Cost before discount * (1 - discount percent) Discounted ApplesPrice = \$65.85 * (1 - 0.2) <-- 20% is the same as 0.2 Discounted ApplesPrice = \$65.85 * 0.8 Discounted ApplesPrice = \$52.68 Now, apply the sales tax to this discounted value to get the total bill: Total Bill = Discounted Apple Price * (1 + tax rate) Total Bill = \$52.68 * (1 + .075) <-- 7.5% = 0.075 Total Bill = \$52.68 * 1.075 Total Bill = [B]\$56.63[/B]
