Mrs. Ford

If the price of gas increases from \$1.01 per gallon to \$1.21 per gallon, what is the percent of increase? 1.21 – 1.01/ 1.01 =.198 or 20% What is the percent of increase from 50 to 75? (75 – 50) / 50 = 0.5 or 50%

Sales Tax – a percent of the purchase price and is an amount paid in addition to the purchase price. Discount – the amount by which the regular price of an item is reduced.

Method 1 First, find the sales tax. 6% of \$17.75 = 0.06 x 17.75 = 1.07 The sales tax is \$1.07 Next, add the sales tax to the regular price. 1.07 + 17.75 = 18.82 The total cost of the soccer ball is \$18.82.

Method 2 Add the percent of tax to 100% 100% + 6% = 106% The total cost is 106% of the regular price. 106% of \$17.75 = 1.06 x 17.75 = 18.82 The total cost of the soccer ball is \$18.82.

Find the amount of discount d. part = percent x whole d = 0.2 x 69.50 Use the percent equation d = 13.90 The discount is \$13.90 The sale price of the tennis racket is \$69.50 - \$13.90 = \$55.60

1. \$22.95 shirt; 7% sales tax Method 1 Find the Tax 0.07 x 22.95 = 1.61 Add the tax to the retail price 22.95 + 1.61 = 24.56 Method 2 107% of \$22.95 = 1.07 x 22.95 = 24.56

Find the amount of the discount Part = percent x whole d =.25 x 39.00 d = \$9.75 The discount is \$9.75 Subtract the discount price from the retail price \$39.00 – 9.75 = 29.25 The sale price is \$29.25
