The tax on a purchase was $9.33. If the sales tax rate is 6%, how much was the purchase? Write and solve an equation.

  • math -

    $155.5

    how I found it: I tried to find what an amount for which to total amount of tax cost $9.33
    so, I chose random numbers to test this,
    155.5x.06=9.33

  • math -

    Online, “*” is used to indicate multiplication to avoid confusion with “x” as an unknown.

    .06x = 9.33

    x = 9.33/06 = 155.50
