In Which I Channel E.D. Hirsch

A publican received a 3.5% exchequer on the sale of a house that costs $200,000. What is the amount, in dollars, of the exchequer? [exchequer = sale price x stripe]

Haven't read that famous 'Literacy' Hirsch book since college. Same Hirsch right? If it is, wasn't the premise to know a shitload of terms? I think I'm 50/50 split on that philosophy.
