3 cases of fresh apples that cost \$21.95 per case with 20% off and a 7.5% sales tax
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]

A bakery sells 5800 muffins in 2010. The bakery sells 7420 muffins in 2015. Write a linear model that represents the number y of muffins that the bakery sells x years after 2010. Find the number of muffins sold after 2010 through 2015: 7,420 - 5,800 = 1,620 Now, since the problem states a linear sales model, we need to determine the sales per year: 1,620 muffins sold since 2010 / 5 years = 324 muffins per year. Build our linear model: [B]y = 5,800 + 324x [/B] Reading this out loud, we start with 5,800 muffins at the end of 2010, and we add 324 more muffins for each year after 2010.

A bedroom set that normally sells for \$1100 is on sale for 15% off. If sales tax rate is 2%, what is the total price of the bedroom set if it is bought while on sale? [U]Calculate the sale price:[/U] Sale Price = Normal Price * (1 - Sales Percentage) [U]With our sales percentage of 15% = 0.15, we have:[/U] Sale Price = 1100 * (1 - 0.15) Sale Price = 1100 * (0.85) Sale Price = 935 [U]Calculate post tax amount:[/U] Post tax amount = Sale Price * (1 + Tax Percentage) [U]With our tax percentage of 2% = 0.02, we have:[/U] Post tax amount = 935 * (1 + 0.02) Post tax amount = 935 * (1.02) Post tax amount = [B]\$953.70[/B]

A bicycle store costs \$2750 per month to operate. The store pays an average of \$45 per bike. The average selling price of each bicycle is \$95. How many bicycles must the store sell each month to break even? Let the number of bikes be b. Set up our cost function, where it costs \$45 per bike to produce C(b) = 45b Set up our revenue function, where we earn \$95 per sale for each bike: R(b) = 95b Set up our profit function, which is how much we keep after a sale: P(b) = R(b) - C(b) P(b) = 95b - 45b P(b) = 50b The problem wants to know how many bikes we need to sell to break-even. Note: break-even means profit equals operating cost, which in this case, is \$2,750. So we set our profit function of 50b equal to \$2,750 50b = 2750 [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=50b%3D2750&pl=Solve']We type this equation into our search engine[/URL], and we get: b = [B]55[/B]

A bike is purchased for \$200 and sold for \$150. Determine the percentage of profit or loss. [U]Since sale price is less than purchase price, we have a loss:[/U] Loss = Sale Price - Purchase Price Loss = 150 - 200 Loss = -50 [U]Calculate percent loss:[/U] Percent Loss = 100% * Loss / Purchase Price Percent Loss = 100% * -50/200 Percent Loss = 100% *- 1/4 Percent Loss = [B]-25%[/B]

A bill at a resturant came to \$95.75. There is 7.5% sales tax added on. You want to leave a 20% tip to the total bill, after tax. How much money will you need to leave for the bill altogether? Since the tip is [I]after tax[/I], we have: Total Bill = Pre-tax Bill * (1 + Sales Tax Percent) * (1 + Tip Percent) Total Bill = \$95.75 * (1 + 0.07) * (1 + 0.2) Total Bill = \$95.75 * 1.07 * 1.2 Total Bill = [B]\$122.94[/B]

A car is purchased for \$19000. After each year, the resale value decreases by 30% . What will the resale value be after 4 years? Set up a book value function B(t) where t is the number of years after purchase date. If an asset decreases by 30%, we subtract it from the original 100% of the starting value at time t: B(t) = 19,000(1-0.3)^t Simplifying this, we get: B(t) = 19,000(0.7)^t <-- I[I]f an asset decreases by 30%, it keeps 70% of it's value from the prior period[/I] The problem asks for B(4): B(4) = 19,000(0.7)^4 B(4) = 19,000(0.2401) B(4) = [B]4,561.90[/B]

If it decreases by 20%, it holds 100% - 20% = 80% of the value each year. So we have an equation R(t) where t is the time after purchase: R(t) = 27,000 * (0.8)^t The problem asks for R(3): R(3) = 27,000 * (0.8)^3 R(3) = 27,000 * 0.512 R(3) = [B]13.824[/B]

Savannah is a salesperson who sells computers at an electronics store. She makes a base pay of \$90 each day and is also paid a commission for each sale she makes. One day, Savannah sold 4 computers and was paid a total of \$100. Write an equation for the function P(x), representing Savannah's total pay on a day on which she sells x computers. If base pay is \$90 per day, then the total commission Savannah made for selling 4 computers is: Commission = Total Pay - Base Pay Commission = 100 - 90 Commission = \$10 Assuming the commission for each computer is equal, we need to find the commission per computer: Commission per computer = Total Commission / Number of Computers Sold Commission per computer = 10/4 Commission per computer = \$2.50 Now, we build the Total pay function P(x): Total Pay = Base Pay + Commission * Number of Computers sold [B]P(x) = 90 + 2.5x[/B]
