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
