A certain tax rate is $.82 per $100.00. What is the rate, expressed as a percent?

A 82%
b 8.2%
c 0.82%
d 0.082%
e 0.0082%



Here in question it is asking $.82 is what percent of $ 100.Suppose $ .82 is x% of 100 means
100* (x/100) = .82
Hence x = .82 %

So answer is C.

Consider giving KUDOS if it helped u in some way.

Well, the rate is to be expressed as percent. So, the rate is multiplied by 100%

\(0.82/100 * 100%\)
=0.82
