They were told to buy 15 Onion rolls, 12 Hamburger buns, 4 loaves of Rye bread and 24 Hot dog buns. How much will it cost them? Also include 8.25% sales tax.
a) 9.66
b) 10.46
c) 6.96
d) none of the above
ANSWER: D

They look correct.

Sorry to disagree, but in #1, I think he would get A, with a day and a half of sick time.
In #2, $10.50 times 80 hours (two weeks) = $840
In #3, calculating the cost of each of the items and adding in the tax = $10.46
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
