MATH WORD PROBLEM/SOLUTION

WORD PROBLEM ON FRIDAY I WENT TO THE NIKE FACTORY OUTLET TO BUY NEW BASKETBALL SHOES. THE REGULAR PRICE WAS 107.97 THE STORE HAD A 30% DISCOUNT HOW MUCH DID I PAY AFTER THE DISCOUNT AND TAX

SOLUTION FIRST YOU NEED TO TURN THE DISCOUNT PERCENTAGE 30% / 100=0.30 OR 0.3 NOW YOU MULTIPLY THE REGULAR PRICE BY THE DISCOUNT 0.3X107.97=32.34 32.34 IS THE DISCOUNTS VALUE SO NOW YOU HAVE TO SUBTRACT 32.34 FROM THE REGULAR PRICE 107.97-32.34= 75.58 NOW YOUR NEW PRICE IS \$75.58 BUT YOU STILL NEED TO DO THE TAX SO NOW YOU TURN THE TAX IN TO A DECIMAL 13%/100=0.13 NOW YOU MULTIPLY 0.13 BY THE NEW PRICE 75.58X 0.13= 9.82 NOW YOU HAVE TO ADD 9.82 TO THE NEW PRICE 75.58+9.82=85.40

FINAL SOLUTION THE TOTAL COST FOR MY NEW BASKETBALL SHOES IS \$85.40
