I CAN find the discount and sale price of an item and find the tax and total price of an item after taxes.

 First find out what tax rate you will be paying.  In each state the sales tax varies.  Convert your percentage to a decimal by moving your decimal two spaces to the left. Ex. 6% = 0.06 (Don’t forget to add a zero)  Multiply the decimal form of the tax rate by the price of the item you are purchasing. Ex. 0.06 x \$ cost of the item

 So if an item costs \$5.00  Sales tax is 6%  Convert 6% to 0.06  So.06 x \$5 = \$0.31  The sales tax is \$0.31  But the total price of the item is \$5.00 + \$0.31 = \$5.31
