# Shona is buying a rug for her room. store a has the rug for \$45 with a 10% discount. store b has the same rug for \$46 and is offering a \$10 off coupon. the sales tax is 6% on either purchase. if shona only has \$40 to spend, which store will she purchase the rug from, and how much will she have left over?

Store is is cheaper by just a little bit less
Store B she would leave with \$4
Store A= with discount it is 40.50 (45 x 0.10 and then subtract the answer from 45) and with tax it is 42.93 (40.5 x 0.06 and then add the answer to 40.5). so she doesn't have enough money for that one.

Store B= with coupon it is 36.00 (46-10). with tax it is 38.16 (36 x 0.06 and then add the answer to 36). She has enough money for this one.

40-38.16= 1.84 left over

that seems right to me
Store A= 45 x .10 = 4.5 45 - 4.5 = 40.5 40.5 x .06 = 2.43 40.5 + 2.43 = 42.93  nowStore B = 46 - 10 = 36 36 x .06 = 2.16 36 + 2.16 = 38.16so 40-38.6 that will be 1.84so correct option is B hope it helps
Shona can afford the rug in store B. She will have \$1.84 left over.

hope this helped! and please mark me as brainliest if you don't mind :)

Shona should purchase the rug from Store B with \$33.84.

She will have \$6.16 left.

Explanation:

Discount for Store A : [email protected]% =\$4.50

Bulget-amount to spend \$40.

Amount to pay \$33.84

Amount left =\$40-\$33.84 =\$6.16

Shawna buys her rug at STORE B and she has \$1.84 left over after purchasing her rug.

Step-by-step explanation:

Store a

Store a sells their rug for \$45

Store a offers a discount of 10%

Discount = 10% × \$45 = \$4.5

Amount payable after discount = \$45 - \$4.5

= \$41.5

There is a sales tax of 6%

The total amount payable

Amount of sales tax + Discounted price of rug

Amount of sales tax = 6 % × \$41.5

= \$2.472

= Discounted amount + Sales tax

= \$41.5 + \$2.472

=\$43.972

Store b

Store a sells their rug for \$46

There is a sales tax of 6%

The total amount payable

Store b offers a 10 dollar coupon off for the rug

= \$46 - 10

Amount payable after = \$36

Amount of sales tax + price of rug(After coupon is deducted)

Amount of sales tax = 6 % × \$36

= \$2.16

Amount payable by Shawna in Store a = \$36 + Sales tax

= \$36 + \$2.16

=\$38.16

Since Shawna has , only \$40 to spend, she buys her rug at STORE B

The amount she has left = \$40 - \$38.16

= \$1.84

-----------
Store A
-----------
Price of Rug = \$45

Discount = 10% of \$45
Discount = 0.1 x \$45
Discount = \$4.50

Price after Discount = \$ 45 - \$4.50
Price after Discount = \$40.50

Tax = 6% of \$40.50
Tax = 0.06 x 40.50
Tax = \$2.44

Price after tax = \$40.50 + \$2.44 = \$42.94

-----------
Store B
-----------
Price of the rug = \$46

Discount = \$10 off

Price after discount = \$46 - \$10
Price after discount = \$36

Tax = 6% of \$36
Tax = 0.06 x 36
Tax = \$2.16

Price after tax = \$36 + 2.16 = \$38.16

--------------------
Conclusion
--------------------

If she has only \$40 to spend, she should buy from store Bm which cost \$38.16 only.
Amount left = \$40 - \$38.16 = \$1.84

B
Have \$1.84
46-10=36
36 times .06= 2.16
Total cost 38.16. 36.00+ tax 2.16
\$40.00-38.16= \$1.84
She'll purchase from store B and have \$2.16 left over.
