    the answer to that question is .66

    8 1/4 cents is $.0825.

    Multiply $.0825 by $8. What answer do you get?

    i got 0.0825

    0.0825 is how you express the tax percentage in the problem. Multiply that number by 8 to find out how much tax she paid.

    How much do you get? It's not 0.0825!

    Good -- $0.66 is correct.
