If the hat costs $975 and the sales tax was 5%, how much did Rose pay for the hat? Rose bought a new hat when she was on vacation. The following formula describes the total amount Rose paid: t = c + cb t = Total cost Rose paid for the hat c = price of hat b = sales tax (percent.) Thank you for your time. <3 xoxo.

    All you have to do is put in your calculator, 975 * .05 which equals 48.75. That is the tax. Add that to the original price (975 + 48.75) and you get your answer. So the answer is $1023.75. Hope I helped you and have a great day :)
