A laptop computer that you want to purchase was originally priced at $975. You will receive a 20% studentDiscount, and the sales tax rate is 8%. How much money will you pay for the laptop? Round to the nearest
cent if needed.
Alrighty, let;'s find what is 20 percent of 975.
20 percent is also 1/5 so 1/5 times 975 is 195
Discount would have 975-195 which is 780
Now we have sales tax which increasces the tax. Let's find what is 8 percent of 780. Let's do 0.08 times 780 which is 62.4
The total is 780+62.4= 842.4
