Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The amount which Jada paid after discount and tax is $ 51.64 Step-by-step explanation:Given as :The original price of snacks = $ 53The price of snacks after applying 10% off coupon = 53 - 10% of 53Or , The price of snacks after applying 10% off coupon = 53 ( [tex]\frac{100-10}{100}[/tex] )or, The price of snacks after applying 10% off coupon = 53 Γ 0.9 = $ 47.7Now the tax applied on the original amount = 8 % of $ 53or, the tax applied on the original amount = [tex]\frac{8}{100}[/tex] Γ 53or, , the tax applied on the original amount = [tex]\frac{424}{100}[/tex] =$ 4.24So The total paid amount = $ 47.4 + $ 4.24 = $ 51.64 Hence The amount which Jada paid after discount and tax is $ 51.64 Answer
