Multiply:

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!

i got 0.66

Good -- \$0.66 is correct.

Q: well how did you get 81/4 to .0825?
