A store Has a percentage lease at a rate of 2.5 percent of gross monthly sales. First -quarter sales were 3,500 for JAn. , 4,250 for Feb , and 5,990 for March. What was the total rent for the first three months?

A:\$276.50
B:\$319.25
C:\$343.50
D:\$424.25


I will take any help I can even if you could explain the problem without giving me the answer.
I'm practicing for the asvab test and the book really dont explain every question they give.

They are asking for 2.5% of the total of the gross sales for those three months.

If gross sales for each month was \$3,500, \$4,250, and \$5,990 what was the total gross sales? What is 2.5% of that?

Or, you could do it the other way- find 2.5% of each of those and then add but that requires a few more calculations.
