A menswear store is having a sale. Buy one dress shirt at full price and get a second shirt for 20% off. If Sam buys two shirts, each with a regular price of \(\$50.97\), how much money will he pay for both shirts?

\(\$91.75\)

Explanation

Sam pays full price for the first shirt which is 50.97 USD and then he gets 20% off the cost for the second shirt. Multiply the cost per shirt by the percentage discount to get the discount for the second shirt:
\(50.97 \text { USD } \times(20 / 100)=50.97 \text { USD } \times 0.20=10.19 \text { USD }\)
So, Sam pays 50.97 USD - 10.19 USD = 40.78 USD for the second shirt.
50.97 USD for the first shirt + 40.78 USD for the second shirt = 91.75 USD for both shirts.
