### What is the full cost of an item that costs \$9.00 with a 7% sales tax?

• A.

\$9.70

• B.

\$9.63

• C.

\$13.60

• D.

7.89

B. \$9.63
Explanation
The full cost of an item that costs \$9.00 with a 7% sales tax is \$9.63. This can be calculated by adding the sales tax amount to the original cost. The sales tax amount is calculated by multiplying the original cost (\$9.00) by the sales tax rate (7% or 0.07). Thus, \$9.00 multiplied by 0.07 equals \$0.63. Adding this sales tax amount to the original cost gives us a total cost of \$9.63.

• A.

\$14.90

• B.

\$16.07

• C.

\$17.12

• D.

\$ 23.00

C. \$17.12
Explanation
The full cost of an item that costs \$16.00 with a 7% sales tax is \$17.12. To calculate this, we need to add the sales tax amount to the original cost. The sales tax is calculated by multiplying the original cost (\$16.00) by the sales tax rate (7% or 0.07). Therefore, the sales tax amount is \$16.00 x 0.07 = \$1.12. Adding this to the original cost gives us \$16.00 + \$1.12 = \$17.12.

### What is the full cost of an item that costs \$23.00 with a 5% sales tax?

• A.

\$24.15

• B.

\$18.00

• C.

\$28.00

• D.

\$24.50

A. \$24.15
Explanation
The full cost of an item that costs \$23.00 with a 5% sales tax is \$24.15. To calculate this, we need to add the sales tax amount to the original cost. The sales tax amount can be found by multiplying the original cost (\$23.00) by the sales tax rate (5% or 0.05). 0.05 multiplied by \$23.00 equals \$1.15. Adding this to the original cost gives us \$23.00 + \$1.15 = \$24.15.

Explanation
The full cost of an item that costs \$17.23 with a 6% sales tax is \$18.26. The sales tax is calculated by multiplying the cost of the item by the tax rate (6% or 0.06), which in this case is \$1.03. Adding this tax to the original cost gives us a total of \$18.26.

### What is the cost of an item priced regularly for \$10.00 that now has a 60% discount?

• A.

• C.

\$ 4.00

• D.

\$16.00

C. \$ 4.00
Explanation
The cost of the item priced regularly for \$10.00 with a 60% discount can be calculated by multiplying the original price by the discount percentage (60%) and subtracting it from the original price. In this case, 60% of \$10.00 is \$6.00, so the discounted price would be \$10.00 - \$6.00 = \$4.00.

C. \$40.00
Explanation
The cost of the item priced regularly for \$50.00 with a 20% discount can be calculated by subtracting 20% of \$50.00 from \$50.00. 20% of \$50.00 is \$10.00, so subtracting \$10.00 from \$50.00 gives us \$40.00. Therefore, the cost of the item with the discount is \$40.00.

\$25.00

C. \$37.49
Explanation
The cost of the item priced regularly for \$62.49 with a 40% discount can be calculated by multiplying the regular price by (100% - discount percentage). In this case, (100% - 40%) = 60%, so the cost of the item would be 60% of \$62.49. This can be calculated as \$62.49 * 0.60 = \$37.49. Therefore, the correct answer is \$37.49.
