The equation you would use is I= P( Money started with) * r(Percent in decimal form) * t(Time in years) for the intrest questions

The equations you would use for the sale questions is (money * percent in decimal=x) then do (money-x)  for sale or (money+x) for markup

1.) 65*.2= 13, then do 65-13= \$52

2.)1200*.03*4= 144\$

3.)4.50*.40 then do 4.50+1.80= \$6.30

4.)150*.55*4=\$330 earned

I might be wrong with these so other people reply to correct me please so I can correct it!

All look fine except for No. 4:

4)

\$150 x 0.055 x 4 =\$33.00 interest earned over 4 years.
