Steve stays at a hotel that charges $99.95 per night plus tax for the room. An 6% tax is charged to the room rate, and an additional one time, untaxed fee of $7.00 is charged by the hotel. Which of the following represents Steve's total charge, in dollars, for staying x nights?

A.) (99.5 + 0.06x) + 7

B.) 1.06(99.95x) + 7

C.) 1.06(99.95x + 7)

D.) 1.06(99.95 + 7)x

A.) (99.5 + 0.06x) + 7

B.) 1.06(99.95x) + 7

C.) 1.06(99.95x + 7)

D.) 1.06(99.95 + 7)x

**For each night, 100% of the $99.95 cost is paid, along with an additional 6% on that $99.95.**

This would be represented as 1.06(99.95x) {106% of the $99.95 cost for each night}

**Also a one time, untaxed fee of $7 is charged.**

Total cost = 1.06(99.95x) + 7

**B.) 1.06(99.95x) + 7**
