    Answer:

    She paid 9% of sales tax

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The sale price of diamond = $375

    Let x be percent of sales tax

    So, amount of tax = x\% \times 375 = \frac{x}{100} \times 375 =3.75x

    So, Amount including tax = 375+3.75x

    We are given that Bethany paid $408.75 for a pair of diamond stud earrings.

    So, 375+3.75x=408.75

    3.75x=408.75-375

    x=\frac{408.75-375}{3.75}

    x=9

    Hence She paid 9% of sales tax
