Question

A new pair of ice skates costs $112.00 at the sporting goods store. If there is a 9% sales tax, what is the actual cost of the skates?

2 Answer

  • Well 9%=0.09 ( NOT 0.9, PEOPLE MAKE THAT MISTAKE ALL THE TIME ), so 112*0.09=10.80

    Then:
    112-10.8=101.20

    $101.20 is the answer.
  • 9% of 112=10.08 so 112=10.08= $122.08 is your answer hope i helped :)
