  1. Aaarrggghhh! What a horrible law!

    Your answer is obviously very wrong. 504 is not much more than 420. It is certainly NOT 12%.

    0.12x = 420

    Solve for x.

  5. 12% is about 1/8

    so, you need about 8 times the amount.

  6. Don't rely on this website for you to pass. If you really are on the edge of not passing, you need serious help. It means you don't care about school and your education.

  7. So it would be 3,500 because as Steve said you would need at least 8 times that amount and 8 times 4 is 32 and there's an 3500 so am I right
