# 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?

$$\10.05$$

Explanation

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: $$\8.74 + \1.31 = \10.05$$
