The city council has decided to add a 0.3% tax on motel and hotel rooms. If a traveler spends the night in a motel room that costs $55 before taxes, how much will the city receive in taxes from him?

    55 * 0.003 = $0.165

    Would that equal out to be 21 cents somehow?

    Nope. $0.165 is 16.5 cents.

    55/3*3=100%
