2. A house is being renovated for $50,000. Right now the HST is 12% and is charged on all renovations. After April the HST will be gone and be replaced with PST of 7% and the GST of 6%. Renovations will only have to charge GST. How much money will the homeowner save if they wait until April to get the renovations done?

Please help , thanks:)

**Reiny**, Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 9:12pmticket next to glass ---- x

premium box ------- x + 60

middle section ----- x+60 - 90 = x-30

x + x+60 + x-30 = 360

3x = 300

x = 100

next to glass = 100

premiusm box = 160

middle section = 70

WOW!

compare 12% vs 13% of 50000

or why not just take the 1% difference , which is $500
