A man goes to the grocery store. He buys a carton of milk for \(\$4.50\), a dozen eggs for \(\$2.25\), and a pound of ground beef for \(\$1.99\). If the tax is \(15\%\) what will his total bill be?
First, calculate the total value of the man’s purchases before tax:
\(\$4.50 + \$2.25 + \$1.99 = \$8.74\)
Then, calculate the amount of tax he will have to pay: \(15\% \times \$8.74 = \$1.31\)
Finally, add these two values to get his total bill: \(\$8.74 + \$1.31 = \$10.05\)
