A) 4% of a B) 6% of a
C) 8% of a D) 10% of a

Answer:   A) 4% of a

Solve 30 + (.0825 x 30) + (15% x 30)

A) 24.750 B) 36.975
C) 34.652 D) 26.354
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 36.975

Explanation:

30 + (.0825 x 30) + (15% x 30)

 

Now

=> 0.0825 x 30 = 2.475 -----(1)

=> 15% of 30 = 450/100 = 4.5 -----(2) 

 

Hence, from (1) & (2)

30 + (.0825 x 30) + (15% x 30)

= 30 + 2.475 + 4.5

30 + (.0825 x 30) + (15% x 30) = 36.975.
