Calculating the tax: $18.35 X 0.08125 = $1.49 Calcualting the final cost: $18.35 + $1.49 = $19.84 Another way to solve this problem $18.35 X (1 + 0.08125) = $19.84 100 % of the shirt price need to be pay thus 100% and 8.125 % (tax cost) can be added first then multiply to the original shirt price to get the final cost.
