Andre’s total bill=\$196.0089

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1

The total bill per item can be expressed as follows;

Bill per item=original price-(discount rate×original price)

Step 2

The expression above can be used to determine the amount paid per item;

VCR bill=180.95-(30% of 180.95)

VCR bill=180.95-(0.3×180.95)=\$126.665

Shirts=48-(0.65×48)=\$16.80

Necklace=106-(0.6×106)=\$42.40

6% of jewelry and electronic purchases=(42.4+126.665)=\$169.065

Sales tax=(6/100)×169.065=\$10.1439

Step 3

Andre’s total bill=shirt+VCR+necklace+sales tax

Andre’s total bill=(16.80+126.665+42.40+10.1439)=196.0089

Andre’s total bill=\$196.0089
