Suppose you are turning in a receipt to your ward financial clerk for a reimbursement and unfortunately only the final amount of $57.93 is showing on the receipt. The ward clerk asks for your help to calculate how much went to state sales tax (which is currently 6%). How much of the total $57.93 went to sales tax?

1.06x = 57.93
x = 54.65
57.93  54.65 = ?
