Sales Tax and Discount Lesson 8-5

Sales tax and discount Sales tax - is an additional amount of money charged on items people buy. The total cost is the regular price plus the sales tax. Discount – the amount by which the regular price of an item is reduced. The sale price is the regular price minus the discount.

Sales Tax The local, state, or federal government receives this money.
For example if: Louisiana State sales tax is 4% Vermilion Parish sales tax is 4.5% Total rate of tax is 8.5%

Sales Tax: Finding the total cost.
A pair of shoes cost \$90, and the sales tax is 4.25%. What is the total cost of the shoes? First find the amount of sales tax. 4.25% of 90 = 4.25% x 90 \$3.83 (This is the amount of tax being charged on the sale. So to find the total cost we add the tax to the original price.)

Sales Tax: Finding the total cost.
Add the sales tax to the original price. = \$ is the total cost of the shoes.

Sales Tax A set of golf balls sells for \$20, and the sales tax is 5.75%. What is the total cost? 5.75% of 20 5.75% x 20 = \$1.15 \$20 + \$1.15 = \$21.15 Add the sales tax to the original price.

Sales Tax The total cost = \$138.45 Your Turn:
A video game system cost \$130 and the sales tax is 6.5%. What is the total cost of the video game system? The total cost = \$138.45
