  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
