Choose two of the following statements and determine whether each makes sense. Support your reasoning with calculations.

My rent increased from 20% to 30% of my monthly income, so the percent increase in my monthly rent check is 10%.

At a clearance sale, the price of a pair of boots is half off the original price. I also have a coupon for half off the clearance price. If I use this coupon, I can get the pair of boots free.

The final price after tax of a stereo is $110.00. The tax rate was 10%. $110-$110*.10 = $99, so the price before tax was $99.
