### From Jackie Welch:

```1. A shirt with an original price of \$21.99

\$21.99 x 50% = \$11.00
Therefore you would pay \$21.99 - 11.00 = \$10.99
The tax is 5% which is 10.99 x 5% = \$0.55
Therefore the total price would be \$10.99 + 0.55 = \$11.54

2.  A tie with an original price of \$9.99

\$9.99 x 50% = \$5.00
Therefore you would pay \$9.99 - 5.00 = \$4.99
The tax is 5% which is \$4.99 x 5% = \$0.25
Therefore the total price would be \$4.99 + 0.25 = \$5.24

3.  A watch with an original price of \$125.00

\$125.00 x 75% = \$93.75
Therefore you would pay \$125.00 - 93.75 = \$31.25
The tax is 5% which is \$31.25 x 5% = \$1.25
Therefore the total price would be \$31.25 - 1.25 = \$32.50

4.  A jacket with an original price of \$27.99

\$27.99 x 25% = \$7.00
Therefore you would pay \$ 27.99 - 7.00 = \$20.99
The tax is 5% which is \$20.99 x 5% = \$1.05
Therefore the total price would be \$20.99 + 1.05 = \$22.04

5.  A pair of socks with an original price of \$2.99

\$2.99 x 25% = \$0.75
Therefore you would pay \$2.99 - 0.75 = \$2.24
The tax is 5% which is \$2.24 x 5% = \$0.11
Therefore the total price would be \$2.24 + 0.11 = \$2.35

6.  A hair pin with an original price of \$2.70

\$2.70 x 0% = \$0.00
Therefore you would pay \$2.70 - 0.00 = \$2.70
The tax is 5% which is \$2.70 x 5% = \$0.14
Therefore the total price would be \$2.70 + 0.14 = \$2.84

7.  A box of Godiva chocolates with an original price of \$17.99

\$17.99 x 0% = \$0.00
Therefore you would pay \$17.99 - 0.00 = \$17.99
The tax is 5% which is \$17.99 x 5% = \$0.90
Therefore the total price would be \$17.99 + 0.90 = \$18.89

8.  A silk shirt with an original price of \$79.99

\$79.99 x 75% = \$59.99
Therefore you would pay \$79.99 - 59.99 = \$20.00
The tax is 5% which is \$20.00 x 5% = \$1.00
Therefore the total price would be \$20.00 + 1.00 = \$21.00

```A shirt
\$21.99*0.50=\$11.00    The original price of the shirt is \$ 21.99. You
\$21.99-11.00=\$10.99   save 50% off the shirt which is a total savings of
\$10.99*0.05=\$0.55     \$11.00.  The total amount of the shirt is \$11.54
\$10.99+0.55=\$11.54    including tax.

A tie
