The sales tax rate in Bergville is 6%. During a sale at the Bergville Coat Closet, the price of a coat is discounted 20% from its $90.00 price. Two clerks, Jack and Jill, calculate the bill independently. Jack rings up $90.00 and adds 6% sales tax, then subtracts 20% from this total. Jill rings up $90.00, subtracts 20% of the price, then adds 6% of the discounted price for sales tax. What is Jack's total minus Jill's total? Express your answer to the nearest dollar.

not 100% sure if I am right the amswer I would give you is $77.00 

by taking the total of 90.00 and added 6%sales tax then i subtracted 20% from the total and recived 76.32 and did the same for the second part also recived 76.32 the round it to the nearest dollar and my answer was 77.00.

Jack =90  x  1.06  x  0.8 =76.32 - his total

 

Jill =90  x  0.8   x  1.06 =76.32 - her total

 

76.32  -  76.32 ==0 difference.
