A person went into a store and saw a shirt that cost $15. How much is the total cost of the shirt including sales tax if the tax rate is 6%?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

You can multiply $15 by 106% to get the answer, since the total cost will be 100% of 15 plus 6% of 15.

106% = 1.06

Total cost = price * tax

Total cost = 15 * 1.06

Total Cost = $15.90

Another way to look at at is to add 15 to 6% of 15, and you will get the same answer:

15 + (0.06)*(15) = 15.90
