At a dinner, the meal cost $22 and a sales tax of $1.87 was added to the bill.

 How much would the sales tax be on a $66 meal? 

 

also: 

ler's mom purchased a savings bond for Tyler. The value of the savings bond increases by 4% each year. One year after it was purchased, the value of the savings bond was $156.

Find the value of the bond when Tyler's mom purchased it.

 

The bike store marks up the wholesale cost of all of the bikes they sell by 30%.

Andre wants to buy a bike that has a price tag of $125. What was the wholesale cost of this bike?

 

If the bike is discounted by 20%, how much will Andre pay (before tax)?

1.87 / 22 = .085 = 8.5% tax

66 * .085 = $ 5.61 tax

 

Another way:   66 dollars is 3 times 22, so the  tax will be 3 times the 22meal tax    1.87 * 3 = $ 5.61

Bike store

 1.30 x = 125     solve for 'x' the wholesale price of the bike
