Calculate the missing information for the following purchases.

Selling Sales Tax Sales Excise Excise Total
Item Price Rate Tax Tax Rate Tax Purchase Price
10. Tire $109.99 6 5

To determine

To calculate: The amount of sales tax, excise tax and total purchase price of Tire when the selling price of Tire is $109.99.

Explanation

Given Information:

The selling price of Tire is $109.99 and the sales tax rate is 6%. The excise tax on Tire is 5%.

Formula used:

The steps to calculate the amount of excise tax are as follows:

Step 1: Find the sales tax by multiplying selling price by the sales tax rate.

Sales tax=Selling price×Sales tax price

Step 2: Find the excise tax by multiplying selling price by the excise tax rate.

Excise tax=Selling price×Excise tax rate

Step 3: Find the total purchase price by adding the selling price, sales tax and excise tax.

Total purchase price=Selling price+Sales tax+Excise tax

Calculation:

Consider the selling price of Tire is $109.99 and the sales tax rate is 6%. The excise tax on Tire is 5%.

The sales tax is:

Sales tax=Selling price×Sales tax price

Now, using the above formula, the sales tax is:

Sales tax=109.99×6%=109.99×6100=109
