Asked by Diana

The tax rate on Jerome Jame's $112,000 vacation home is 25 mills. The property is assessed at full value. How much will Jerome pay in taxes this year? A. $780 B. $7,800 C. $2,800 D. $28,00?

Hello, As mention in the question, Tax Rate = 25 mills = 2.5 % (25/1000) Principal Amount = $112000 Period = Time = 1 year Thus we see this as a mathematical equation in the form of simple interest (SI) SI = (principal amount * tax rate * time) / 100 SI = (112000 * 2.5*1)/100 = $2800 Hope this helps to get your answer

Hello Diana. The Mills rate represents a figure amount per $1000 of the assessed value of the property (mills is derived from the Latin word "millesium" which means thousandth). The assessed value of the property is $112,000. The tax rate is 25 mills which means $25 per $1000. So the tax due is 25*112=$2800. Alternatively, one can think of 25 mills as a tax rate of 2.5% (25/1000 = 2.5/100). So now you just need to calculate 2.5% of $112,000 which is $2800. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Amir Saei

Second year dental student, happy to help :)

Hi, my name is Abdur and I’m currently studying Dentistry at the University of Bristol. I’d describe myself as a kind and friendly person who loves to teach using evidence-based techniques. As a dental student, a lot of my time is spent learning but also teaching others as it reinforces the knowledge I’ve gained from lectures, seminars and clinical sessions. I’d describing my style of teaching as interactive and personal as everyone has their own way of grasping topics. What sets my teaching apart from others is that it integrates core topics and links the common themes which cements the information to a deeper level of understanding. This is something I’ve used in my own studies which has helped me to ranked in the top 10 for the end of Year 1 exams and over achieve over 70% in end of Year 2 exams. I have been tutoring and mentoring students since 2016. What I’ve learnt from this experience is that building confidence in students is one of the key components to boosting grades. I highlight strengths and weaknesses so we can reinforce the areas which require more attention. This is through evidence-based teaching called active recall. The purpose of this method is to stimulate the mind through questioning rather than passive learning. Passive learning is something many students are guilty of which often leads to average grades. Through active learning it highlights areas that requires more attention. Spaced repetition will help to prevent forgetting important information and enables long term storage of knowledge which is crucial for exams!
