Rebecca goes to the store and spends $129 on food and $76 on non-food items.
The local sales tax rate in her town is 3% on food items and 6% on non-food items. The state sales tax rate is 3% on food items and 5% on non-food items.
What is the total cost of her purchase (including taxes)?

Step 1
Cost on food = $ 129
Local sales tax = 3 % and state tax = 3 %
Total cost on food = 129 + 3 100 ( 129 ) + 3 100 ( 129 ) = $ 136.74
Step 2
Cost on non-food = $ 76
Local sales tax = 6 % and state tax = 5 %
Total cost on non-food items: 76 + 6 100 ( 76 ) + 5 100 ( 76 )
= 76 + 4.56 + 3.8 = $ 84.36
total cost of her purchase = $ 136.74 + $ 84.36 = $ 221.1
