Answer:

#" "#
Katy paid a total of #color(red)($33.60# for her haircut and shampoo.

Explanation:

#" "#
Katy paid #color(blue)($23# for her haircut.

She offered a #color(blue)(20%# tip

Hence,

the Tip amount = #color(blue)((20/100)*23#

#rArr $4.60#

She also paid #color(blue)($6# for her shampoo.

Hence,

total amount spent by Katy will be:

#$23.00 + $4.60 + $6.00#

#$33.60#

Hence, Katy paid a total of #color(red)($33.60# for her haircut and shampoo.
