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

• math -

Calculate the total cost of each game including tax--remember 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.
