Answer:$16.22

Step-by-step explanation:When 18 dollars is discounted by 15%, we first need to find what 15% of 18 is. 18 times .15 is 2.7, and 18-2.7 is 15.3.

Then, we need to find the sales tax, which applies to the discounted price. 15.3 times 0.06 is 0.918. Add that to 15.3 and you get 16.218, or about $16.22. Hope this helped! 😀
