Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay let's work out the total original price first and then we'll add on the taxes. So essentially we have the equation \[6 * 19.27 + 88.22 + 321.77= ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes nice! Now we have to add on the taxation. If the taxing is 4.5%+2%=6.5% total, you then convert the percentage to a decimal, which equals 0.065. You then multiply that by your total value, hence: \[0.065 * 525.61 \approx 34.16\]
