Wanda the Witch and Gweneth the Goblin decide they want a pet. They bought a black cat for $131.30. The state demands that they pay 6.5% tax on the purchase and charges them an additional 30% fee for initial immunizations (shots) for the cat. What is the total amount of money they spent on the cat?

Assuming  the  the state fee is on the total amount (after tax amount) 

131.30 (1 + .065) (1.30)  = $181.78

 

Assuming that  the  30%  fee is  only on the original  amount  (before tax amount )

131.30 (1+.065)  + 131.30 (.30)  =

131.30  ( 1 + .065 + .30)  = $179.22
