    You buy a shirt for $19.99. The sales tax is 6.5%.

    Step 1:

    Change 6.5% to its equivalent decimal by moving the decimal point two places to the left.

    6.5% = 0.065

    2. Multiply the cost of the shirt by 0.065.

    19.99 * 0.065 = 1.299 = $1.30 tax

    3. To find the total cost,
    Add 19.99 + 1.30 = ?
