# Soon purchased an office chair for $167.87. She received a $19.95 rebate from the manufacturer an $8.95 rebate from the store. The sales tax in her state is 55%. What is the final price?

The final price is

A rebate is a partial refund, so start by subtracting the two rebates from the original price.

Next, the sales tax is 55%. In decimal terms, this is 0.55. However, she still has to pay full price for the chair AND the sales tax, so we add 1. Now multiply the decimal by the current chair price, and find your final answer.

To find the final price, subtract the rebates from the original price, then add the sales tax. So, $167.87 -$19.95 - $8.95 =$138.97. Then, calculate the sales tax: $138.97 * 0.55 =$76.43. Finally, add the sales tax to the discounted price: $138.97 +$76.43 = $215.40. Therefore, the final price is$215.40.
