\$2.58

Step-by-step explanation:

4.45*0.42 = 1.87

4.45 – 1.87 = 2.58

When you multiply things under 0, but still positive, you get the percentage,

for example 0.42 is 42 percent, 0.50 is 50%, and 0.15 is 15%. Which is why you multiply 0.42 by 4.45, you get 1.87.

4.45 minus 1.87 because,

You have 42% of 4.45, but you need to take 42% off.

2. 42 % = number x 0.42
4.45 x 0.42 = 1.87
4.45 – 1.87 = 2.58 per cake
