    Answer:

    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
