    Answer:

    $30.72

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You were right with your answer, the teacher is probably just wanting you to tip on the subtotal (before tax) instead of the total total. Instead of doing total+tax+tip, we’re going to figure out the tax and tip separately and then add it all together.

    Tipping on the subtotal (what your teacher wanted)

    20% of $24 = $4.80

    8% of $24 = $1.92

    $24+$4.80+$1.92=$30.72

    Tipping on the total (what you did)

    8% of $24 is $1.92

    New total is $25.92

    20% of $25.92 is $5.18

    $25.92 + $5.18 = $31.10
