    What was the regular price of the T-shirt?

    $18

    What question is being asked in this word problem?

    what is the regular cost of the t-shirt purchased by Jill.

    What is the regular price of the skirt?

    $42

    How much money does Jill have left?

    without considering sales tax, Jill has $90 - $31 = $59 left. If I use the sales tax from where I live, the sales tax = $1.86, so the money that Jill will have left = $59 - $1.86 = $57.14

    How much does the T-shirt normally cost?

    $18 (same as question 1)

    What is the amount Jill pays in sales tax?

    since you do not include the sales tax % in the question, I will simply use the sales tax from where I live = $31 x 6% = $1.86

    Step-by-step explanation:

    skirt $21

    t-shirt = p - $8

    before sales tax, total cost was $31

    $21 + p - $8 = $31

    p = $18
