- 2 binders at $4.99 each
- 1 math set for $3.99
- a backpack for $19.99

2 binders 4.99 x 2= 9.98

9.99 + 3.99 + 19.99 = 33.97

$34

34 x 1.12 = 38.08

$38.99

The total cost including the 12% of taxes is $38.99

3. A store discounted items by 50% off the original price one week. The following week an additional 10% was taken off the already reduced price. The regular price of a CD player was $85.00. What is the reduced price in the second week.
