a. How much do Tom and his cousin pay for the shirts? Show your work.

b. Who spent more on tax? (3 points)

18.

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 newspaper’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)

I need help solving these problems. I need to show my work, but I don't really know the steps to solve these problems. Thanks so much.

The more you pay, the more tax you paid.

That should get you going

18) difference / start

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

That should get you going
