You need some school supplies. Here is a list of items (at regular price) that you need to purchase:

Six binders, $3.39 each
Three pens, $1.49 each

The store is offering the following discounts:
Discounts on regular-priced items:

Protractors 10% off
Notebook Paper 15% off
Writing Utensils 15% off
Using a spreadsheet program (Excel), create a spreadsheet with the following columns:
School Supplies
Quantity
Cost per Item
Discount $ Amount
Cost with Discount
Total with Sales Tax
Enter the supplies and prices from your list in the appropriate columns. Do not type the dollar sign to show monetary values. Instead, type the numbers with appropriate decimals first, and then format the cells to currency. (Since not every item has a discount, you will need to enter 0% in the formula of non-discounted items)
Use the appropriate formulas to calculate the “Discount $ Amount”, “Cost with Discount” and “Total with Sales Tax” for each item. Use cell names in your formulas instead of actual numbers.
Assume that the sales tax is 4.5%, and use this amount to make your final calculations.
Bold and center all your labels. Left align the text within the other cells.
Calculate the total spent (Make sure to include quantity, cost, discount, tax – ex: 5 widgets at $5.00 a piece with a 20% discount and 5% sales tax equals $21.00)
