handsome jack is buying a pony made of diamonds the price of the pony is P dollars and Jack also has to pay a 25% Diamond Pony tax match the expressions to their meaning for handsome Jack and they say multiple expressions may fit in the same may fit the same description alright so in this bucket we have the price of the diamond pony before tax well they already tell us that the price of the diamond Pony is P dollars so that's P right over here now over here they say the amount of tax handsome Jack pays well he pays a 25 percent diamond pony tax so whatever the price is he's going to pay 25 percent of that or another way of thinking about he's going to pay 25 percent is the same thing as 0.25 so 0.25 times P is the amount of tax he's going to pay on this Diamond pony now they say handsome Jack's total bill for the diamond pony well he's going to pay P for the pony plus 0.25 P in taxes so that is this one right over here P for the pony plus 0.25 P for the taxes so that's that one over there but if we look at this you could view this literally as 1p plus 0.25 peas well that's the same thing as 1.25 P so that's the same thing as this right over here so it's 1.25 P and these other three don't seem to fit in any of these categories so I'm going to put it into the not use we're required to categorize everything so let me put this in the not used just falling off the screen I realize let me put this in the not used and then let me put this in the not used let's check our answer we got it right
