A menswear store is having a sale. Buy one dress shirt at full price and get a second shirt for 15% off. If Sam buys two shirts, each with a regular price of \(\$35.76\) , how much money will he pay for both shirts?

\(\$66.16\)

Explanation

Sam pays full price for the first shirt which is \(\$35.76\) and then he gets 15% off the cost for the second shirt. Multiply the cost per shirt by the percentage discount to get the discount for the second shirt:
\(\$35.76 \times (15 \div 100) = \$35.76 \times 0.15 = \$5.36\)
So, Sam pays \( \$35.76 - \$5.36 = \$30.40 \) for the second shirt.
\(\$ 35.76 \text { for the first shirt }+\$ 30.40 \text { for the second shirt }=\$ 66.16 \text { for both shirts }\)
