well, 24.99 + tax, tax is 7.5% of 24.99 meaning, 24.99 is the 100% if 24.99 is the 100%, what's 7.5% of that? well \(\bf \begin{array}{ccllll} amount&\% \\\hline\\ 24.99&100\\ x&7.5 \end{array}\implies \cfrac{24.99}{x}=\cfrac{100}{7.5} \)

i may have misread the question, i assumed that the question had sales take that wasnt included. Jdoe read it as though it was already included. Sorry about that

so the total purchase is 24.99 + 1.87425

so first, we would divide 700/75 to find out how many inches long it is. Mind doing that and telling me what you get?
