  • This percentage, called the Sales Tax Rate, varies from state to state, in Texas for example there is a general sales tax rate of around 6.25%.

  • "Sales tax charged price"
    • = "Price without sales tax" + "Sales tax amount"

  • "Price without sales tax"
    • = "Sales tax charged price" ÷ (1 + "Sales tax rate%")
    • = $525 ÷ (1 + 5%)
    • = $525 ÷ (1 + 5/100)
    • = $525 ÷ (1 + 0.05)
    • = $525 ÷ 1.05
    • = $500 dollars.
