### Michelle's Percent Scribe for February 3, 2010

4.99 + 4.99 + 3.99 + 19.99 = 33.96
( add all the items together, to get the total )

33.96 x 1.12 = 38.04
Then you find 12% of 33.96. I did it the easier way and added the taxes and the 100 % together.

The reduced price in the second week is \$ 38.25 .

For example if the item cost \$35 plus tax. ( 12 % )
You could just combine the 100and the % 12 % to get 112 %. Then divide by 100 to get 1.12.
After : 35 x 1.12 = \$39.20

( That's the easiest way I'd do it .)
