i added the occpiment together to get 33.96\$ and then i added the gst and pst to get 5% thenI multiplied \$33.96 x 1.12 = 38.04

Question 10 Pg 149
What is the total cost for four tires that sell for \$85 each, plus 5% GST and 1.5% environment tax.
I found the total for the four tires which was \$340.Then I found 1% of 340
= 3.40.3.40 x 6 = \$20.400.
5% = 1.701.70 + 20.40= \$22.10340 + 22.10
= \$362.10The total for the four tires is \$362.10.
