2. 1.

40% = 40 / 100 = 0.4

85 / 0.4 = 212.5

2.

5% = 5 / 100 = 0.05

0.05 * 1250 = 62.5

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
