Hey! So first you'd convert the 5% to a decimal. Which would be 0.05. Then, multiply the original cost (170) by the decimal (0.05). You would get 8.5. Subtract that number from the original cost and you get $161.50 as the final answer. 4. kaylorb8284 says: 1. its 5.68 2. its 8.50 you just multiply the numbers by the percents 5. scholar345 says: I'm pretty sure the answer would be$178.50. Becuase when you are adding the sales tax it would be 1.05 x 170
