I'm very stuck! I go to Connections Academy, and I'm on "Versatile Distributive Property Portfolio, Unit 5, Lesson 11. Please help! Here is the question: You are purchasing four items and want to calculate the tax. The items
cost \$2.50, \$8.75, \$3.00, and \$10.25. The tax rate is 6%. How much is the tax?
Show the calculation for using the distributive property, and not using the distributive property. HELP!

1. taxing each item is the same as adding them up and taxing the sum:

(\$2.50+\$8.75+\$3.00+\$10.25)*.06

6%(\$2.50+\$8.75+\$3.00+\$10.25)=
6%x\$2.50+6%x\$8.75+6%x\$3.00+6%x\$10.25=
\$0.15+\$0.525+\$0.18+\$0.615=
