The total cost after tax to repair Deborah’s computer is represented by 0.08 (50h)+ 50h , where h represents the number of hours it takes to repair Deborah’s computer. What part of the expression represents the amount of tax Deborah has to pay? Explain.

The cost before tax is cost=50h


and then we apply an 8% tax to that to get tax = 0.08 cost = 0.08(50h)


and we add the two together to get the total cost


total = tax + cost = 0.08(50h) + 50h
