Answer:

$ 93.804 or $93.80 after rounding.

Step-by-step explanation:

Answer:The 15% discount means that they only pay 100%-15% = 85% of the meal’s bill.

This would cost 85% * 78.65.

However, they also have to pay a 20% tip of the meal cost.

This would cost 20% * 78.65.

Total Cost = (85% * 78.65) + (20% * 78.65)

= 105% * 78.65

= 1.05 * 78.65

= $82.58
