robert bought a used car for $1,500.00 if the sales tax is 5% what is the total that he paid?

multiply 1500 by .05, then add to the 1500
or, in one step
1500 x 1.05

math  Guido, Tuesday, February 12, 2008 at 5:45pm
Total = 1500 x 0.05 + 1500
Let t = total
t = 1500 x 0.05 + 1500
t = 75 + 1500
t = $1575
Done!
