Tom buys a shirt for $22.00 plus 7% sales tax. His cousin buys a shirt for $18.00 plus 4% sales tax.
a. How much do Tom and his cousin pay for the shirts? Show your work.
b. Who spent more on tax? (3 points)
Is my answer correct:
B: Tom's cousin
**I already know A, thanks for your help!
You are guessing.
1.07 * 22 = tom's price
1.04 * 18 = his cousin's price
then to see who spent more on tax,
0.07*22 = how much tom spent on tax
0.04*18 = how much cousin spent on tax
We could go see by the logical way....
tom's tax is 7%
cousin's tax is 4%
tom's price is higher than cousin's...
hmm... who has more tax?
Oh my gosh, I am so sorry everybody! I meant Tom paid a higher tax.......so sorry!
