Chapter 6 - Percent - 6.6 Solving Application Problems with Percent - 6.6 Exercises - Page 440: 29


Total cost of the hampers and pans is $90.62.

Work Step by Step

Total cost includes the price of the hamper multiplied by 3 plus the price of the pans multiplied by 4, sales tax on that amount at a rate of 5%, and the cost of shipping based on the cost of the hampers and pans. $c=(9.99\times3)+(10.99\times4)=29.97+43.96=73.93$ $t=73.93\times0.05=3.70$ Shipping is 12.99 on goods costing 70.01 to 99.99. $tc=73.93+3.70+12.99=90.62$
