## Calculating the sales tax percentage of a total:

We can determine the sales tax percentage of the total cost if we are given the total cost of an item or group of items as well as the pre-tax cost of the good(s). The total cost of the purchase must first be deducted from the pre-tax value. The next step is to calculate the sales tax to pre-tax cost of the items. In order to determine the percentage of sales tax, we must create a proportion where the pre-tax cost is equal to 100%. Lets start by working through an example. If a person pays $245. 64 for groceries that cost $220. 00 before tax, then what is the items’ sales tax rate?

To calculate the cost of the sales tax, first deduct the pre-tax cost from the total cost of the items.

Next, calculate a ratio between the item’s pre-tax cost and the sales tax.

Finally, calculate the percentage of sales tax by formulating a proportion where the pre-tax value is proportional to 100%.

By multiplying each side by the pre-tax amount, isolate the sales tax percentage to the left side of the equation.

Considering that our response is in dollars and cents, round to two decimal places.

Finally, by computing the sales tax percentage of the total as previously seen, we can verify this response.

First, by shifting the point two spaces to the left, we must convert the sales tax percentage into a decimal.

Now, in order to determine the cost of the sales tax, we must multiply the item’s pre-tax price by this amount.

Since our total is in dollars and cents, round to two decimal places.

To determine the final cost, combine this value with the item’s pre-tax price.

Our answers check out; therefore they are correct. Now, lets use this information to solve the given problem.

## Solution:
