Melissa wants to buy a new pair of shoes that have an original price of $45. Melissa has a coupon for 20 percent off to use on them, which amounts to a discount of $9. If sales tax is 9 percent on the final price of the shoes, how much tax will she need to pay?


  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    First, we subtract the $9 from the $45, so that equals $36
    9% of the 36% is added to the final price as tax
    36 x 0.09 = 3.24
