Question

The sales tax in one state is 5%. Write a function rule for finding the total cost of an item with selling price x. Then find the total cost of a CD player with a selling price of $110.

f(x) = 5 + x; $111.05

f(x) = 1.05x; $115.50

f(x) = x – 5; $108.95

f(x) = 0.05x; $5.50

Answer:The sales tax in one state is 5%. Write a function rule for finding the total cost of an item with selling price x. Then find the total cost of a CD player with a selling price of $110.

A. f(x) = 5 + x; $111.05

B. f(x) = 0.05x; $5.50

C. f(x) = x � 5; $108.95

D. f(x) =1.05x; $115.50

total cost = (price) + (5% of price)

f(x) = x + 0.05x

f(x) = 1.05x

So the function is f(x) = 1.05x

Plug in x = 110 to get

f(x) = 1.05x

f(110) = 1.05*110

f(110) = 115.50

The item costs $115.50 (after tax is added on)

Step-by-step explanation:1: the total cost of a CD player would be 104.76

2: Total Cost = (price) + (5% of price)

f(x) = x + 0.05x

f(x) = 1.05x

So the function is f(x) = 1.05x

Plug in x = 110 into the function

f(110) = 1.05*110

f(110) = 115.50

The item costs $115.50

3: Answer:

f(x) = .05x; $5.50

Step-by-step explanation:

f(x) = .05x

f(110) = .05(110) = $5.50
