0.76 * 1.5 = 1.14

6000 * 1.14 = 6840

Another way you can do it is:

1.5 * 6000 = 9000

9000 * 0.76 = 6840

OK:

1.5 x 6000 = 9000

then

.0075 x 9000 = 68.4

Your first answer above is correct!

68.4 is correct because the problem says 0.76%.

If the problem had said 76%, Ms. Sue's answer would be correct. It's just a matter of where that decimal is placed.
