    What is it right???

    Hello guys!!!!

    Yesterday morning I was buying a t-shirt, but It doesn't have price (tha tag was missing), and I asked to the cashier...

    -" Do you know how much does this t-shirt cost? "

    but I think the right way was:

    - " Do you know how much this t-shirt costs?

    Is that true?, or maybe I'm crazy and no one of them is right.

    Thanks in advance

    .
    Your version is certainly understandable, Roger, but more common and accepted are:

    Do you know how must this T-shirt costs/is?
    Can you tell me how much this T-shirt costs/is?
    How much is this T-shirt? Do you know?
    How much does this T-shirt cost? Can you tell me?
