On a shopping trip to a local department store, Josephine purchases a shirt for $20.00, a pair of jeans for $35.00, and a pair of sneakers for $50.00. At the register, she redeems a coupon for 30% off her entire bill. With the discount, how much does she pay in total?

Ms. Sue,
0.7(20 + 35 + 50) = _______

Mishka Swan,
I got 52.5? But the choices I have are $73.50,75.00,104.70,or 105.00

Math! 
Ms. Sue,
How did you get 52.5?
Did you add the three purchases?
Did you multiply the total by 0.7?
