Question

Cool Tees is having a Back to School sale where all t-shirts are discounted by 15%. Joshua wants to buy
five shirts: one costs \$9.99, two cost \$11.99 each, and two others cost \$21.00 each.
a. What is the total cost of the shirts including the discount? b.By law, sales tax is calculated on the discounted price of the shirts. Would the total cost of the shirts
including the 6.5% sales tax be greater if the tax was applied before a 15% discount is taken, rather
than after a 15% discount is taken? Explain. c. Joshua remembered he had a coupon in his pocket that would take an additional 30% off the price
of the shirts. Calculate the new total cost of the shirts including the sales tax.
d.
If the price of each shirt is 120% of the wholesale price, write an equation and find the wholesale
price for a \$21 shirt.
