math sales tax apllied problem?
The sales tax rate in a city is 7.32%. How much sales tax is charged on a purchase of 3 blenders at $15.86 each? What is the total price?
And what is the amount of sales tax?

three blenders would cost:
15.86 * 3 = $47.58
At 7.32% tax, multiply the percent by the amount to get the tax amount:
47.58 * 0.0732 = $3.48 (rounded to the nearest penny)
Add the amounts to get the total price:
47.58 + 3.48 = $51.06
