Let x be the property value.

We have, annually,

60/100*x is the accessed value.

rate for this annually is 60/100*x*4/100.

Hence per quarter,

rate=60/100*x*4/100*1/4

This rate = $240

Hence accessed value = 240/(60/100*4/100*1/4)

=$40000

Work backwards.

Amount paid yearly?
$240 quarterly = $240*4 = $960 paid annually

Tax rate?
A little tricky. The rate is 4 percent ($4/$100) of 60 percent (given), so
Multiply the multipliers:
(.04)(.60) = .024 =
annual tax rate on appraised property value

OR

\(\frac{4}{100}=\frac{X}{60}\)
\(X =\frac{240}{100}= 2.4\)
percent
is the annual rate paid on appraised property value, P

$960 paid yearly = 2.4 percent of appraised property value, P

\(.024P = $960\)
\(P = \frac{$960}{.024} =\frac{$960,000}{24}= $40,000\)


Answer D
