1. Find 10% of $500 and 10% of $300.Since 6% is a little more than half of 10%, what is half of 10% of 500? Add this with 10% of 30, since 8% is close to 10%. Does you answer make sense ?

Ms. Sue,
What do you want us to check?
Did you follow my suggestions in the previous post?

Thomas,
I don't understand the sentence
10% of $500 = $50
10% of 300 = $30
6% is a little more than half of 10%,what is half of 10% of 500
5% of 500 = $25
Add this with 10% of 30 = $3
( Since 8% is close to 10%. Does your answer make senseWhat that mean? ) 
math 
Ms. Sue,
25 3 = 28
You did it right and your answers make sense. 
math 
Thomas,
so, I just write down this and say the answer is make sense
