Lesson 3-2 Example 4 3-2 Solve. Mike ordered a motor scooter online. The scooter costs \$1,000 plus 6% sales tax. What was the total amount Mike paid for his motor scooter? Understand Read the problem. Write what you know. The motor scooter costs \$1,000. The sales tax rate is 6%.

Lesson 3-2 Example 4 3-2 Plan Pick a strategy. One strategy is to solve a simpler problem. Find 6% of 100. By definition of percent, 6% of \$100 is \$6.

Lesson 3-2 Example 4 3-2 Solve 6% of \$1,000 is 10 ● \$6 = \$60. So, the total cost is \$1,000 + \$60 = \$1,060. Mike paid a total amount of \$1,060.
