In October, a HARDWARE STORE purchased snow shovels for $8 each. The original markup was 50% based on the selling price. In December, the store had a sale and marked down the shovels by 20%. By January 1, the sale was over and the shovels were marked up 15%. In March, the store held a clearance sale of all winter tools by having a final markdown of 60%. What was the final selling price of the shovels? (Round to the nearest cent.)
8(1+.50)(1-.20)(1+.15)(1-.60) = 4.42
