Ellen wants to purchase a book that is regularly priced at $18. The book is discounted 15%. She also needs to pay a 6% sales tax on the discounted price. the book is originally $18... then if you discount it by 15%... $18-($18 x .15)=$15.3 then it says that she has to pay 6% of the already discounted price... $15.3+(15.3 x .06)=16.218$ if you round it to the nearest whole penny its... Answer: 16.22$
