Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Alex24C You're asking a number of these, which are very similar and clearly from some homework or something. Are you familiar with what a percent is? In this case you're adding 10% onto $55, which is 100% cost + 10% tax = 110% total of the 55%.
