Ronnie bought 6 ice cream cones for himself and his friends. Seventeen cents tax was added to the price of each cone. The total cost was $14.58.

He price of the cone before tax was 2.26 dollars. hope this helps!

$2.26

Step-by-step explanation:

Each ice cream cone cost $2.26 before tax. If it is 17 cents tax for each cone and there are 6 cones, you multiply the tax with the number of cones, $1.02. Then you subtract that from the total cost to take away tax, $13.56. Lastly, you divide the price without tax by the number of ice cream cones so you know how much each one costs, $2.26, and there you go!

Step-by-step explanation:

Since the tax is 17¢, then you have to subtract that from 14.58

14.58-.17=14.41

14.41/6

$2.40

Price of a cone after tax = 14.58/6 = 2.43

Price before tax = 2.43 - 0.17 = 2.26

In short, Your Answer would be $2.26

Hope this helps!

2.26

Step-by-step explanation:

226 cent

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x represent the price of a single cone

6×(x+17) = 1458

⇔ x+17 = 1458/6 =1 458÷6 = 243

⇔ x = 243 - 17 = 226

1.02 total tax

Step-by-step explanation:

1 icecream costs 14.29

The total amount taxed for the 6 icecreams were 1.02. Did my best. Id.k what the question was asking for.

$14.58

-$0.17

$14.41

÷6

2.4016666667

$2.40 per cone (rounded by cent)

$2.26

Step-by-step explanation:

6 ice cream cones means the price is 6 time as much as on cone so divide by 6.

$14.58 total

/6 number of cones

$2.43 cost of a single cone

now, we remove the $0.17 tax

$2.43

-$ .17

$2.26
