Sales tax is a percentage. If it is, for instance, 6% --- then take your calculator - put in the price of item. For instance, $19.99 - then hit the x (for times) button - then hit 6, then the % button. Then the = sign. That will give you what 6% of $19.99 is. Then add that amount to $19.99.

The equation for tax is: tax = price * rate So to get the sales tax, multiply the price times the rate on your calculator. Remember that percent means 1 / 100 so you will also need to divide the answer by 100. Let's take an example of a $2000 TV with 6% sales tax. Plug the following into the calculator: 2000 * 6 / 100 You will get $120 as your answer which is the tax. You can double check your work with a dedicated sales tax calculator like http://www.sale-tax.com/Calculator?price=2000&rate=6
