Answer:
$12.85
Stepbystep explanation:
First we need to find the sale price of the CD
Sale price = old price  old price * discount rate
= 17  17* .3
= 17  5.1
= 11.9
The sale price of the CD is 11.90
Now we need to find the tax
tax = sale price of cd * tax rate
= 11.9 * .08
= .95
The final cost of the CD is sale price of CD plus the tax
Total cost = sale price of CD + tax
= 11.90 + .95
=12.85
