$179 is the original price
find 15% of the original price
179 x .15 = 26.85 dollars off
$26.85 is how many dollars off
subtract the dollars off from the original price
$179 - 26.85 = $152.15
$152.15 is the discounted price
find 7.5% of the discounted price
$11 .41 is total tax
add that to the discounted price and you have $163.56
now divide that by 3 ( Grace (1) and her (2) brothers (=3) )
 $163.56 divided by 3 = $54.52

they APPROXIMATELY paid $55 dollars each the answer is B
