Answer: See explanation

Step-by-step explanation:

Your question isn’t complete as you didn’t give the sales tax percent. In order to solve the question, let’s assume that the sales tax is 6%.

(a) What is the amount of sales tax that Mr. Speer has to pay?

This will be:

= Sales tax percent × Amount charged

= 6% × $300

= 6/100 × $300

= 0.06 × $300

= $18

The sale tax is $18

(b) What is the total amount Mr. Speer has to pay?.

The total amount will be the addition of the amount charged and the sales tax. This will be:

= $300 + $18

= $318
