In 2000, the circulation of a local newspaper was 3,250. In 2001, its circulation was 3,640. In 2002, the circulation was 4,100.

a. Find the percent of increase in the newspaperâ€™s circulation from 2000 to 2001 and from 2001 to 2002.

b. Which period had a higher percent of increase, 2000 to 2001, or 2001 to 2002? (3 points)

first: pay=(1.07)*22 + (1.07)18

The more you pay, the more tax you paid.

17) .07 times 22.00 will give you the amount of tax on the shirt

That should get you going

18) difference / start

2000 to 2001. Would be (3640-3250)/3250 or 12%

That should get you going
