*Sales tax is always applied after the discount/coupon
1. Find how much Hana had spent on pants. Since she had bought 2 pairs of pants, and they are $26.59 <u>each,</u> we would have to multiply 26.59 by 2. So,
26.59 times 2 is 53.18.
Hana spent $53.18 on pants
2. Find how much Hana had spent on a coat. Since she had bought 1 coat, and they are $49.00 <u>each,</u> we would have to multiply 49.00 by 1. So,
49.00 times 1 is 49.
Hanna spent $49 on coats
3. Find how much Hana spent on clothes. Since she spent $53.18 on pants and $49 on coats, we would have to add 53.18 and 49. So,
Hanna spent $102.18 on clothes
4. Find how much Hana "spent" after using the coupon. Since the problem says the coupon helps Hana <u>save</u> $10, we need to subtract 10 from 102.18(the total amount of money Hana spent on clothes before using the coupon). So,
Hanna "spent" $92.18 on clothes after using the coupon
5. Find how much was the total purchase. Sales Tax is the amount of money that needs to be <u>added</u> to the price. Since the price is $92.18 and the sales tax is $7.84, we need to add 7.84 to 92.18. So,
