Today in class we learned how to find the total cost of something (including tax.) I'm going to show how to find it in 2 different ways.
Question 2. Suppose GST is 5% and PST is 7%. You purchase an item for $100.
1st Way - First you add the taxes (5+7=12.) Then find 100% (100.) Then add them all up, so the total cost will be $112.
2nd Way - You could find 112% of the number. ($112)
Question 3. Suppose an item regularly priced at $200 is on sale for 10% off.
PST is 7% and GST is 5%.

I hope I did it right..
