Heather is buying a T-Shirt for \(\$8\). Sales tax is \(8\frac{1}{4}\) cents per dollar. How much will Heather pay in sales tax on her purchase?


The easiest way to solve this problem is to change the fraction to a decimal.\(8\frac{1}{4} \text {cent} = \$0.0825\).

Then multiply: \(8 \times 0.0825=0.66\)

Add:\( \$8.00 + 0.66\) = Total cost of shirt
