A sales tax of 7% 
20161207 

From Kenneth: Hello:
If a sales tax of 7% is placed on every $1.00 of merchandise for sale, is it correct to indicate
the tax as 7%/ per $1.00 or 7%/$1.00? If the calculation is expressed as 7%/$1.00 X $5.00,
the tax is not $0.35 but 0.35. Is a tax rate of 7% incorrectly represented as 7%/$1.00
since the dollar unit cancels from the multiplication?
I thank you for your reply. Answered by Penny Nom.
