Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let p= the regular price of a tshirt in dollars. Let s= the sales price of a tshirt in dollars. Let r= the sales tax rate as decimal. So you have Part A: \[s=p5.00\] Part B; \[p(r)=(p5.00)(r+1)\] Part C: \[p(r)=(15.505.00)(1+.05)\] Which gives us $15.75
