ahh, sorry. what I meant was, to plug in "70.00" for "item cost" in my equation
final price = item cost + (sales tax/100)*item cost, meaning
final price = 70 + (6/100)*70

its ok so with ng in the sales tax it would be 74.20 right ?

- LynFran

ok so 6/100*70=? then the answer you get add it to the cost to get the new price ok

- Vocaloid

- anonymous
