A sales tax of 8.25% will be added to your order. What is the final price including all discounts and taxes for the clothing? Round your answer to the nearest cent.

Pants = \$82, 2 shirts = \$53 * 2, shoes = \$120

Add all these values up to find the total cost of your order excluding tax.

82 + 53 (2) + 120 = 308

Now let's find the price w / tax. Multiply 308 by 8.25%, or 0.0825.

308 * 0.0825 = 25.41

Add the tax to the total value.

308 + 25.41 = 333.41

The total value including tax is \$333.41. The online retailer is offering a 30% savings (discount), so multiply the total price including tax by 30% (0.30).

333.41 * 0.30 = 100.023

Subtract the discount from the total price.

333.41 - 100.023 = 233.38700

The question wants the answer rounded to the nearest cent, or hundredths, so your final answer is 233.39.

The final price of the clothing including all discounts and taxes is \$233.39.
