Step-by-step explanation:

$h=0.08x$

Step-by-step explanation:

Given :

Sales tax is a function of the price of an item.

The amount of sales tax is 0.08 times the price of the item.

To Find: Function

Let the price of an item be x

Since we are given that amount of sales tax is 0.08 times the price of the item.

Thus amount of sales tax = 0.08 x

Let h represents the amount of sales tax .

So, function :

$h=0.08x$

Hence , the function represents the situation : $h=0.08x$

Option C:

h(x) = 0.08x

Solution:

Given data:

Sales tax is a function of the price of an item.

Let h be the function.

Take x be the price of an item.

Amount of sales tax = 0.08 times price of the item

= 0.08 × x

Amount of sales tax = 0.08x

⇒ h(x) = 0.08x

Hence the function is h(x) = 0.08x.

Option C is the correct answer.
