## Arithmetic Reasoning

A man goes to the grocery store. He buys a carton of milk for \$4.50, a dozen eggs for \$2.25, and a pound of ground beef for \$1.99. If the tax is 15%, what will his total bill be?

a. \$7.76

b. \$8.74

c. \$10.05

d. \$13.27

C: First, calculate the total value of the man’s purchases before tax:
\$4.50 + \$2.25 + \$1.99 = \$8.74

Then, calculate the amount of tax he will have to pay:
\$8.74 * .15 = \$1.31

Finally, add these two values to get his total bill:
\$8.74 + \$1.31 = \$10.05
