You purchase a 599$ tv set and you must pay the 9% sales tax. What is the total cost? Can someone please show me step by step how to do this?

Thank you.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

tax = 9%*599

=%53.91

total=53.91+599

=$652.91

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Thank you very much that helped me a lot.

Can you answer another one really quick for me?

You receive a 7% discount on a purchase of 1,275. What is your discounted cost? I'm confused because of the discount, I'm not sure if I would divide 1,275 by 7 or not.


Thank you.

100%=1275

93%=?

93%*1275/100

=$1185.75

please best me
