George give $64 to the cashier
That’s glaringly obvious
what a smartypants Nate is
Mr. Staples can’t mark him wrong on THAT one.
Good job Nate! You figured it out!
That could be some kind of math riddle!
NATE!!! this is serious. How could you write that in a MATH TEST? this is funny and surprising at the same time. I never knew he could be so dumb.
Doesn’t it depend on the state? Some states tax on the pre discount price, or used to anyway. That always seemed unfair to me.
i mean… he’s not wrong…
75% of 80 = 60
105% of 60 = 63
The answer is $63.
Why would anyone pay that much for a pair of tennis shoes? Mine cost $30, at full price, and they’re just fine.
Moral: Update your contents to keep with the times.
Cha Cha real smooth
If Nate doesn’t get the answer correct, then Mr.STaples is dumb
I mean, wouldn’t you?
I mean, Nate isn’t wrong.
The question is, will the sales tax be percentage of the discounted price or the original price?
Oh my gosh (that still is pretty smart, smart I mean like I can buy the dollar store with 1 dollar)
