  1. 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%. 

  2. 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%

  3. 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%

  4. 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. 

  5. 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%

  6. 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%
