17 is $20 minus 15%, or $3.

The sales tax is 7% of the bill, after the discount. So, we take the new bill, $17, and multiply it by 7%, or .07, to get $1.19. Then, we add that to the bill, so $17 + $1.19, which is $18.19. So: Original bill: $20 Bill after discount: $17 Sales tax on new bill: $1.19 New bill with added tax: $18.19
