    1.99 X 1.065 is the answer. ($2.12)

    To convert percentage to decimal, you move the decimal to left 2 spots.

    To figure out the tax you multiply the % by original amount...which would be $1.99 X .065.

    For a quick way to find out the final price, put a "1" in front of the ".065"....

    Then round to the nearest penny. You actually get 2.11935, but rounded you get $2.12.

    ok so set up your paper as x/1.99 (x over 1.99) then next to it put a multiplication sign. Then write 6.5/100 (6.5 over 100). You then cross multiply so 1.99 x 6.5 divided by 100. And that should get you the answer!

    First get the 6.5% of $1.99 by:

    x/1.99 = 6.5/100

    x = 0.12935

    Then add that to the $1.99.

    Answer: $2.12

    6.5% of 1.99 = 6.5 x 1.99 / 100 = 0.13

    Total paid = $1.99 + 0.13 = $2.12

    $1.99 * 1.065 = $2.12 . . (1.065 is 6.5% + 100%)
