The school nurse made a presentation about smoking to the 7th grade class. She said that smoking hurts your health. She said it also hurts your pocket! She said that a pack if cigarettes costs about $5.48 plus 9% sales tax. How much would a person spend on cigarettes in a year if he smoked one package of cigarettes in a year if he smoked one package of cigarettes on each of the 365 days of the year?

Cost of cigarette = 5.48(1 + 0.09)

                           = $5.97

     total cost = (5.97)(365)

                     = $2179.05
