Half of $1.425.
14.25*5/100= $ 0.7125 (so it is 71 cents [Actually, as you can see, it is a bit over it, if one wants to be accurate, but we don't have parts of a cent]).
5% of $ 14.25
= 5 / 100 X 14.25
= 71.25 / 100
=(0.7125) = $ .7125 (answer)
As always, Pete is a leftist therefore wrong.
5% of $14.25 is .7125
