    80(.075)=6 80+6=$86

    Yes. Does it make sense? 7.5% is =.075 in decimal form so if you multiply that buy the total cost you get $6 worth of sales tax. Thus, a total price of $86.

    That's why I try and guide someone through problems. This one was too easy so I first did it, then explained. I'm lazy so the harder problems I don't like to do, so I guide.
