A pair of jeans = $40.00 There is a 6.5% sales tax. First change the % into a decimal by moving the decimal point two spaces to the left. 0.065 Multiply that by 40.00 to find out how much the tax is. 40 × 0.065 = 2.6 Now add the tax to the initial price. 40.00 + 2.6 = 42.60 The total cost is $42.60.

$40.00 + 0.065*40.00       ( 6.5% = 0.065 as a decimal fraction) =  $42.60
