The question:

jeans cost 560 plus 6% sales tax what is toyal cost


The answer:

Jeans cost $5.60 plus 6% sales tax.

What is the total cost?

Total cost of purchasing the Jeans = Cost of Jeans + Sales Tax

Sales Tax charged to purchase a pair of Jeans = (cost of Jeans)*(tax rate)

Sales Tax charged to purchase a pair of Jeans = ($5.60)*(6%)

The % must be changed into its decimal equivalent.

Sales Tax charged to purchase a pair of Jeans = ($5.60)*(.06)

Sales Tax charged to purchase a pair of Jeans = $0.336 = 34 cents

Total cost of purchasing the Jeans = Cost of Jeans + Sales Tax

Total cost of purchasing the Jeans = $5.60 + $0.34

Total cost of purchasing the Jeans = $5.94

The total cost can also be calculated by multiplying $5.93 by 1.06

Total cost of purchasing the Jeans = $5.60*1.06

Total cost of purchasing the Jeans = $5.936 = $5.94

Both answers are the same.


The final answer to your question is: $5.94
