Hello!

**10% off means there's a discount on the jacket, so we will be finding how much the discount is worth and then we'll subtract that from the original cost of the jacket. **

**Sales tax is basically additional money added to the cost of an item, so we will find what the sales tax is on this and then add that to the cost.**

59.27 * 10% = 5.927

59.27 - 5.927 = 53.343

**Now, find and add the sales tax. **

53.343 * 7% = 3.73401

53.343 + 3.73401 = 57.07701

Round this to 57.1

**The total cost of the jacket is $57.1.**

Well, remaining drive is 1/3 of 180

that is 60 miles

hope it helped

The answer is 286. That is the answer.

**Answer:**

Solution,

First term (a) = 25

Common difference (d) = Second term - first term = 20 - 25 = -5

Now,

nth term = a + (n - 1)d = 25 + (n - 1) (-5) = 25 - 5n +5 = 30 - 5n

The nth term of the series is 30 - 5n
