shumbamma : your dinner bill for monday evening is $ 22.79. You leave a 20 % tip and are charged 7 % sales tax. Your dinner for tuesday evening is $ 23.84. You leave a 15 % tip and are charged 6 % sales tax. For which meal do you pay more.



PLEASE SHOW STEPS!.... this is kindaaa urgent.

InordIgnopy : You need to find the total price for each meal and choose which one is greater. So...

For Monday Evening (ME) find the additional 20% tip and the sales tax on $22.79

(22.79 / 100) * 20 = 4.558 = $4.56
(22.79 / 100) * 7 = 1.5953 = $1.60

Therefore total price for ME = $22.79 + $4.56 + $1.60 = $28.95



For Tuesday Evening (TE) find the additional 15% tip and the sales tax on $23.84

(23.84 / 100) * 15 = 3.576 = $3.58
(23.84 / 100) * 6 = 1.4304 = $1.43

Therefore total price for TE = $23.84 + $3.58 + $1.43 = $28.85

Therefore as ME > TE you pay more for the Monday Evening meal.

PM me if you have any questions about the above.
