2. Sneakers are \$70×0.25(25%off)=\$17.50. Take the original price of \$70-\$17.50(25%off)=\$52.50. Now for the sales tax. 52.50×.06 (6%tax)=\$3.15tax. 52.50+3.15=\$55.65 (price paid for sneakers)

4. 20x.27==5.4
20-5.40=14.60
14,60x3=43.80
18x.27=4.86
18-4.86=13.14
43.80+13.14 = 56.94

5. So Sorry! Posted the wrong answer- that one is for TRIAND #15 about financial literacy. Here is #14-
70x.25=17.50
70-17.50=52.50
52.50x0.06=3.15(tax)
52.50+3.15=55.65
