Assuming the HST is the provincial sales tax in BC, PST is the provincial Sales tax in Quebec, and GST is a national Sales tax charged on both provinces, I would get the following calculations:

a) Initial price is $79. Add on the GST of 5% and `79+.05 xx 79=$82.95` Then add on the 12% HST `82.95+.12 xx 82.95=$92.90` The price at Blackcomb is $92.90

b) Initial price is $79. Add on the GST of 5% `79+.05 xx 79=$82.95` Then add on the 9.5% PST `82.95+.095 xx 82.95=$90.83` So the Price at Mont Tremblant is $90.83.

c) The difference is `92.90-90.83=2.07` The difference in prices is $2.07 cheaper in Quebec than in British Columbia.

BC = 79 (1.12) = 88.48

a) **The ski pass at Blackcomb Mountain cost $88.48.**

QC = 79 +(0.05)79 + (0.095)79 = 90.455 ~ 90.46

b) **The ski pass at Mont Tremblant, QC cost $90.46.**

**c) ** The difference in the price is $90.46 - $88.48 is: **$1.98**

**Mont Tremblant costs $1.98 more than Blackcomb Mountain.**
