A man goes to the grocery store. He buys a carton of milk for $4.50, a dozen eggs for $2.25, and a pound of ground beef for $1.99. If the tax is 15%, what will his total bill be?
First, calculate the total value of the man’s purchases before tax:
$4.50 + $2.25 + $1.99 = $8.74
Then, calculate the amount of tax he will have to pay: $2948_w141_h14.png$
Finally, add these two values to get his total bill: $8.74 + $1.31 = $10.05
