Q:

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: She is not correct. She hasn't enough money to buy the skateboard.
Step-by-step explanation:Hi, the question is lacking the last part:
Is she correct? Explain
So, we have to multiply the price of the skateboard (139.99) by the sale discount percentage (in decimal form), to calculate the discount amount.
139.99 x (15/100) = $20.99
85Then we subtract that amount to the skateboard price:
139.99- 20.9985 =$118.9915
Next we have to calculate the tax amount, with the same process:
118.9915 x (7/100) = $8.32
9405Adding the tax amount to the sale price:
118.9915+8.329405 = $127.32 final price
Since she has $125, she hasn't enough money to buy the skateboard.
127.32 >125
