## Total Price with Sales Tax

### Sales Tax: Learn

Many states and cities levy a sales tax on retail purchases. The sales
tax is determined by finding a percentage of the purchase price.
The percentage of tax called the *tax rate* varies between
different cities and states.

For example, in one state the sales tax rate is 6%. If someone makes a $10 purchase, then the tax on that purchase is 10*0.06 = $0.60.

However, most consumers want to know the total cost of their retail purchase. In order to get the total cost, you can add back the sales tax to the original amount: $10.00+$0.60 = $10.60.

Alternatively, you could account for this in the beginning by adding 1 to the decimal form of the percent. Using the same example above, 10*1.06 = $10.60.
