What is the sales tax rate...... by [email protected] Revolution » Sun Aug 15, 2021 9:02 pm Solution: Tax paid on$50 = $2.50. Thus, a tax, which is four times as much as the above, would be$(2.50 × 4) = $10.00 on$50.

Thus, the tax rate = $$\ \frac{10}{50}=0.2$$

Thus, this tax, expressed as a percentage = $$0.2=100\cdot\ \frac{2}{10}=20\%$$

Therefore, D is the correct answer. [Course] Starting $79 for on-demand and$60 for tutoring per hour and \$390 only for Live Online.
