The Norris

The Norris family goes out for lunch, and the price of the meal is 52. The sales tax on the meal is 6% and the family also leaves a 20% tip on the pre-tax amount. What is the total cost of the meal?

Correct answer:

x =  65.52

Step-by-step explanation:

a=52 q1=6%=6100=0.06 q2=20%=20100=0.2  x=a (1+q1+q2)=52 (1+0.06+0.2)=65.52
