A 3 percent federal excise tax is added to the bill.

What is the total cost of its telephone service for the month?

Figure 19.1

Find the cost of additional minutes.

(550 – 500) × \$0.35 = \$17.50

Find the federal excise tax.

(\$59.99 + \$17.50) ×3% =

\$77.49 ×3% = \$2.3247 or \$2.32

Find the total cost for the month
