## Taxes and tips

My example of taxes and tips will be at Walmart because Walmart is awesome!! | I went to Walmart with $40. I bought a scarf for $5.20 but then as I was leaving I seen that I had enough to buy about one more thing | I went back in the store and seen these really cute boots the for $100. The cashier walked by and gave me a discount for 70% off And that's a really good deal so I got them and all together I spent $35.20 with $4.80 left over so I gave the cashier 20% for such good service |
