Tom buys a shirt for \$22.00 plus 7% sales tax. His cousin buys a shirt for \$18.00 plus 4% sales tax.

a. How much do Tom and his cousin pay for the shirts? Show your work.
b. Who spent more on tax? (3 points)

B: Tom's cousin

You are guessing.

1.07 * 22 = tom's price

1.04 * 18 = his cousin's price

then to see who spent more on tax,

0.07*22 = how much tom spent on tax

0.04*18 = how much cousin spent on tax

We could go see by the logical way....

tom's tax is 7%

cousin's tax is 4%

tom's price is higher than cousin's...
hmm... who has more tax?

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry everybody! I meant Tom paid a higher tax.......so sorry!
