## Worksheet Description

This worksheet displays a McDonald’s receipt with various items ordered, including a Big Mac, Chicken McNuggets, and a selection of beverages. The receipt outlines the quantity, price per item, and the total price for each, along with a subtotal, tax amount, and the total amount due. Students are tasked with a series of questions that require them to calculate the total amount paid, adjust the subtotal for additional items, determine the total spent on beverages, apply a discount to the items, and compute the total cost with an increased tax rate.

The worksheet is designed to teach students practical arithmetic skills through the context of a fast-food restaurant receipt. It reinforces addition and multiplication to determine totals and subtotals, encourages understanding of percentages as they apply to discounts and tax rates, and fosters critical thinking through hypothetical scenarios involving price adjustments. It also introduces concepts such as tax increment and budgeting considerations, providing a practical application for math in everyday purchasing decisions.
