Of course I am talking about math, I have tried to figure this out on my calculator and with pen and paper and i come up with completely different results. Can anyone help??

subtotal 43.80
- coupon for 20% (I get 8.76 both on paper and on calculator)
+ shipping 3.95
+ sales tax of 6.4% (I get different totals for this on paper and calculator)(I get 2.49 and 2.66)
= ??

this is driving me nuts!!! :loop: The order i have to do it is subtotal minus coupon, plus shipping, plus sales tax, equals grand total. can anyone help??

LOL Lori!! Math is certainly never been my friend. Even in school, i was never good at it. Some days math clicks right away for me, but most days I am lucky to be able to do my counting on my fingers and toes!:toothy:

Melissa, I can relate, I am completely math illiterate. I rely so strongly on my calculator that I am sunk if I have to do any kind of percentages in my head.:confused:

My trusty calculator came up with the same total as everyone else-41.48.
