He purchased 3 packs of chicken wings ($8.00 ea.), 1 gallon of lemonade ($5.00), 1 gallon of water ($3.50), 2 packs of hot dogs ( $7.50 ea.), 1 pack of hamburgers ($10.00). All of the meat items were 20% off the regular price. What is Adam's total bill? (Round to the nearest dollar.)

Shannon B.
Answer:

Adams total is $ 48.00 3 Packs of Wings: $8 x 3 = $24 x 20% (.20) = $4.80 2 Packs of Hot Dogs: $7.50 x 2 = $15 x 20% (.20) = $3.00 1 Pack of Hamburgers: $10 x 20% (.20) = $2.00 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- $24.00 - $4.80 = $19.20 $15.00 - $3.00 = $12.00 $10.00 - $2.00 = $8.00 Sum = $19.20 + $12.00 + $8.00 + $5.00 + $3.50 Adam's total bill amount is $47. 70
