Answer:D. $150.80Step-by-step explanation:We have been given that Rico lives in Michigan, which has a sales tax of 6%. He just bought some water skis, whose full price was $180, but he presented the retailer with a coupon for $40, which the retailer accepted.The total amount paid by Rico for the ski would be cost of ski plus sales tax minus coupon amount.[tex]\text{Total amount paid by Rico}=(\$180+\$180\times \frac{6}{100})-\$40[/tex][tex]\text{Total amount paid by Rico}=(\$180+\$180\times 0.06)-\$40[/tex][tex]\text{Total amount paid by Rico}=(\$180+\$10.80)-\$40[/tex][tex]\text{Total amount paid by Rico}=\$180.80-\$40[/tex][tex]\text{Total amount paid by Rico}=\$150.80[/tex]Therefore, Rico paid $150.80 for the ski and option D is the correct choice.
