Conor has $200 available to buy software packages to run updates on his employee computers. Each software package has a price of $12, and Conor will pay a sales tax of 8% of the total price of the software. What is the maximum number of software packages Conor can buy?
Answer: Conor will be able to buy 15 software packages.
First, we will calculate the tax that will need to be paid:
200/100*8= 16 US dollars-tax interest will be paid.
200-16=184-after paying taxes, there will be money left.
