Jim bought two shirts that were originally marked at $40 each. One shirt was discounted 20% and the other was discounted 25%. The sale tax was 4.5%. How much did he spend in all?

  • Math for educators 1 -

    40 * 0.8 = 32

    40 * 0.75 = 30

    30 + 32 = 62

    62 + 2.79 = 64.79

    I missed the fourth step.

    62 * 0.045 = 2.79
