    Depends on what the tax is say the tax is 10% then you multiply the cost of what you are buying by 110%

    Item cost x. And tax is t%... therefore it will be tx/100 + x

    What if the thing that you are buying is 5.99 and the tax is by 6%

    So if you were buying shoes that are $10 it would be 10*110%= 1100 move the decimal two spots to the right making it 11.00

    5.99*106= 634.94 move the decimal to the right two spaces so it is $6.34
