At the bookstore checkout, you watch as the register rings up your purchases and coupons.

The prices were as follows:

$1.85

$8.56

$6.30

$2.73

$5.25

$4.09

$7.95

- $0.85 (coupon)

- $2.10 (coupon)

The register gives your total bill as $41.44. Estimate the total amount of the bill, by rounding

each value to the nearest dollar, and use your answer to determine whether the total on the register is reasonable.

    2.00+9.00+6.00+3.00+5.00+4.00+8.00-1.00-2.00 = $34.00$1.44 - 34.00

    41.44 - 34.00 = 7.44

    The difference is $7.44, therefore the amount on the register is not reasonable.
