    total cost is 5800 + VAT, namely: \[\Large 5800 + \left( {5800 \cdot \frac{{20}}{{100}}} \right) = ...?\]

    total cost would be 5800 + 20% of 5800 5800 + .2(5800) = total cost

    turn your percent to a decimal 20% = 0.2 5800 + 0.2(5800) = total cost 5800 + 1160 = total cost 6960 = total cost understand ?
