1. 10% of 5270 = $527 5% of 5270 =$263.50
1% of 5270 = $52.70 6% of 5270=$316.20
16% of 5270 = $843.20$843.20 + $5270 =$6113.20

sorry if it’s long lol i wanted to break it down as much as possible

\$6113.20

EXPLANATION:
There is two ways to make an expression to solve this which is
y = 1.16x
or
y = x + 0.16x

Here is the explanation for the first expression, it is more thorough:

The airline makes her pay x amount in dollars for the ticket alone. Then, the airline charges an additional 16% of that x amount. Just a policy they’ve required.
Therefore:
y = x + 0.16x

• x is the ticket price
• 0.16x is 16% of that ticket price

Plug x with the initial charge amount:
y = 5270 + 0.16(5270)
y = 6113.20
