Hi lilwallace;
The federal excise tax of 8% on the round trip ticket is calculated by multiplying 8% times the price of the ticket. Remember 8% is written as .08 when we multiply.
$832 times .08 = $66.56 is the excise tax

$832 times .06 = $49.92 is the sales tax

Now we just add the ticket price plus the excise tax and the sales tax and we get $832 + $66.56 + $49.92 = $948.44

Hope this helps Loringh PS Please leave a rating for me.. Thanks

Convert 91/92 to a decimal round to the hundredths


The answer is .989130 For those of you who haven't passed grade school math just divide 1 by 92, then multiply that answer by 91 =.989130. You can do the rounding because I have to take a nap. It's really hard to tax my mind that much at 75. LOL.

My total sale is $101.65. I collected 6.25% sales tax. What is the formula to find out the portion of the total is the sales tax total?


Partly this is a matter of interpretation. If $101.65 is seen as 100% then sales tax is
$101.65 x 6.25 / 100 = $6.35

However there is a flaw in this. The remainder (the sale price) is
$101.65 - $6.35 = $95.30

So what was the sales tax on this remainder?
6.35 / 95.30 x 100 = 6.67%........too much

So we should regard the $ total as 106.25% not 100%. Then the amount which was sales tax is really
$101.65 x 6.25 / 106.25 = $5.98

Rules for rounding numbers


If the rightmost digit o be changed (rounded) is 1,2,3,4 replace it by 0 (round down). If it is 6,7,8, or 9 increase by 1 the penultimate digit (round up).
What to do if the last digit is 5? Most people round up. Some purists recommend to round up and down alternatively.

Why does the constitution allow the federal government to levy taxes?


The basic thing is that without the taxations of all types of your dues it could not be operated any more. It is also fact that Section 8 of the Constitution does, and the 16th amendment specifically authorizes the income tax. Federal Tax Levy is involving all around taxes and taxation departments transactions. Before that, income tariffs were the main source of revenues for the federal government. So anybody who tells you tariffs failed doesn't know history before 1913 and he did not have any kind of idea about failed of tariffs or anything.

University theater sold 444 tickets for a play. Tickets cost $20 per adult and $15 per senior citizen. If total receipts were $7345 how many senior citizen tickets were sold?


Let A = number of adult tickets and S = number of senior tickets.
The total number of tickets is 444. This equals A + S.
444 = A + S
Total receipts were $7345. This can be represented as:
7345 = A*20 + S*15
Solve for A in first equation.
A = 444 - S
Substitute this into the 2nd equation for A
7345 = (444 - S)*20 + S*15
Solve for S
7345 = 8880 - 20*S + 15*S
7345 = 8880 - 5*S
-1535 = -5*S
307 = S

Therefore there were 307 senior tickets sold.
The number of adult tickets would be 444-307 = 137

University theater sold 444 tickets for a play. Tickets cost $20 per adult and $15 per senior citizen. If total receipts were $7345, how many senior citizen tickets were sold?


Let S = number of senior tickets and A = number of adult tickets.
From the given information you know a) that S+A = 444 (total tickets sold) and b) 20A+15S = 7345 (amount of money taken in).
Rearrange a): A = 444-S and substitute it in b), then solve for S.

20(444-S) + 15S = 7345

8880 - 20S + 15S = 7345

8880 - 7345 = 20S - 15S

1535 = 5S

S = 307
