robert bought a used car for $1,500.00 if the sales tax is 5% what is the total that he paid?

  • math -

    multiply 1500 by .05, then add to the 1500

    or, in one step

    1500 x 1.05

  • math -

    Total = 1500 x 0.05 + 1500

    Let t = total

    t = 1500 x 0.05 + 1500

    t = 75 + 1500

    t = $1575

    Done!
