No matter where Sasha is in the country, the pre-tax price of a cup of coffee at a paritcular coffee retailer is 5.00.  However, sales tax varies by region.  In Atlanta there is a 8.5% sales tax, while in Chicago there is a 10% sales tax.  How many cents more does Sasha pay when she buys the coffee in Chicago than when she buys it in Atlanta?

The difference in tax is 1.5 %. This equals to a difference in price of \(x = \frac{5.00}{100}\cdot 1.5 = 0.075 dollars = 7.5 cents\).
