  2. 1.

    40% = 40 / 100 = 0.4

    85 / 0.4 = 212.5
    ANSWER A

    2.

    5% = 5 / 100 = 0.05

    0.05 * 1250 = 62.5

    Answer A

    3.

    6.25% = 6.25 / 100 = 0.0625

    0.0625 * 249.99 = 15.624375

    15.624375 + 249.99 = 265.614375

    OR

    Price of a desk = 100%

    Tax rate = 6.25%

    Total price = 100% + 6.25% = 106.25% = 106.25 / 100 = 1.0625

    1.0625 * 249.99 = 265.614375

    $ 265.61 to the nearest cent
