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

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.

your state % x the purchase price. if unsure what your state's % is, ask any retailer if the purchase price is 100 and the tax is 10%, 10% x 100 = 10 add the tax due to the produce price THE END total price would be $110.00-- you got that in the 5th grade luck to you
