haris has 20.92 to spend on videosgames rentals at a local video store. the store charges 3.95 per videogame rental plus 8.125% tax. what is the maximum number of video games that harris can rent?

Calculate the total cost of each game including taxremember that 8.125% = 0.08125
total cost = game + tax
= $3.95 + 0.08125($3.95)
Now divide the money he has ($20.92) by the total cost per game. Disregard any remainder/fraction/decimal of a game since you cannot normally purchase a piece of a game.
