Question:

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?

A
$10.05

Explaination

First, calculate the total value of the manâ€™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
