Hi! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! : )

1. If the make up originally costs $4.30 but is on sale for 40% off, first we need to find the sales price

Discount amount = original * discount rate = 4.30 *(.40) = $1.72

Sales price = original price - discount amount = 4.30 - 1.72 = $2.58

2. Now there is a 6% tax on it. So we need to multiply the sales price by the tax rate

Tax amount = sales price * tax rate = 2.58 *(.06) = 0.1548

Final Cost = sales price + tax = $2.58 +$0.1548 = $2.7349 = $2.73

So the makeup will cost $2.73

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions. I hope this helps! Mallory : )
