    You are guessing.

  • 7th grade math please check ASAP please! -

    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?
