# Math question

Posted in the Little Falls Forum

Need some help
#1 Mar 25, 2013
I figure there are a lot of smart people on this forum so I have a math question I am struggling to solve.

It is one of those stupid word / math questions.

"Company A reports \$16,000 in sales every month and must collect sales tax of 8.25%. How much sales tax would Company A have collected in 2 years?"

"Company B reports \$1,000,000 in gross sales every year and is exempt from sales tax. The tax rate is the same as Company A. How much sales tax did Company B not collect over a 14 year period?"

"Which Company has a bigger economic impact to the community?"

Thanks in advance for your help? I hate these stupid word questions!

1,500 citizens plus eight out of eight common council members plus one mayor want something to be over. But one assessor and five whack jobs want that same something to continue. Which side of the equation is greater?

I have now just coined a new physical ailment that you absolutely have...ready for it??

It is the dreaded "DES" more commonly known as "Deflection Erection Syndrome." What are the signs you ask? If you post from a Herkimer IP and are addicted to posting deflections then you have "Deflection Erection Syndrome."

If you have a Deflection Erection for more than 4 hours please seek immediate medical attention.

People kept signing it since that post on February 2nd. Duh! I hear the petition is closer to 2,000 signatures now, on March 25th.

Funny, I hear that most of the original 550 have retracted their support.
