Apack of cinnamon-scented pencils sells for $5.00. what is the sales tax rate if the total cost of the pencils is $5.35? the sales tax rate is:

If the cost is $5.00 and the total cost is $5.35, then the tax rate is 7%.

Explanation:

(Converted dollars to cents)

535 - 500 = 35

35 ÷ 500 x 100 = 7%.

sales tax 6%

Step-by-step explanation:

pencils' price= $ 5.00

pencils' price + sales tax = $5.30

$5.00 + sales tax = $5.30

sales tax = $5.00- $5.30

sales tax= $0.30

sales tax = % in decimals times pencils' price

$0.30 = p x $5.00

p= $0.30/ $5.00

p= 0.06

in percent is 6%

Calculate the percentage increase,work out the difference (increase) between the two numbers you are comparing. Then divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.

520-500 = 20

20÷500 =.04

.04 ×100= 4%

(Total price - sale price)/sale price so (5.25 - 5)/5 = 5%

To find the sales tax, you subtract, the cost without the sales tax from the total cost which is 5.35-5. So the sales tax is 35 cents. To find the tax rate, you need to find what percent of the cost without sales tax is 35 cents. So you do 5x=.35. You find x to be .07. And since you need to change that to a percentage, you multiply be 100 and get 7%. Hope this helps.

The sales tax rate is .15%

The sales tax rate is 7%

Given:

Sales price = 5.00

Total amount paid = 5.35

Sales tax value = Total amount paid - sales price

= $5.35 - $5.00

Sales tax value = $0.35

Sales tax rate = Sales tax / Sales price

= 0.35/5

Sales tax rate = 0.07 or 7%

The sales tax rate is 5%

Given:

Sales price = 5.00

Total amount paid = 5.25

Sales tax value = Total amount paid - sales price

= $5.25 - $5.00

Sales tax value = $0.25

Sales tax rate = Sales tax / Sales price

= 0.25/5

Sales tax rate = 0.05 or 5%

5.00 + 3%= 5.15

The raw is 3%
