Alice Correa bought three yards of cloth to make a dress. The cloth was on sale for $1.93 per yard. How much did Alice pay for the cloth if the sales tax was 5 percent? A. $5.79 B. $5.82 C. $2.02 D. $6.08
Since the unit rate is $1.93 per yard, you need to multiply the number of yards by 1.93. So 1.93 x 3 = 5.79. Next, you convert 5% to a decimal, which is 0.05. Now, multiply 5.79 by 0.05, which is about 0.29. Finally, add 0.29 to 5.79, giving you the answer of 6.08. Alice payed $6.08; D.
