1. your favorite book is $29.50, how much is it with tax?

2. A new bed set is $45.00, it is 15% off discount with the tax

3. Your brother's baseball costs $53.35 a month, but now they added 23% of the original cost to it, how much is it now?

Note: each answer needs tax of 7.725%

1.

29.50 * 1.07725 = ?

2.

45 * 0.15 = 6.75

0.07725 * (45 - 6.75) = ?

3.

0.07725 * (53.35 * 1.23) = ?
