Sales tax is $2.33 ; total cost is 38.18

It is 55.64

You don't round a whole no. Generally, things like sales tax are rounded when end result is a fraction of a cent & many taxes are fractions themselves. For 75.5 cents would round up (.76), anything less than .5 rounds down as a rule of thumb.

5.2 percent sales tax means you multiply by 0.052. So 429 * 0.052 = 22.308, which rounds to 22.31 (nearest cent), and the total price is 429 + 22.31 = 451.31

25% off of 35.00 is 0.25 x 35 = 8.75 35-8.75 = 26.25 with tax of 7%, cost is 26.25 x (1.07) = 28.09

The answer depends on what tax. In the UK, income tax that is already paid is always rounded up.

6.5/100 = 0.065 33.51*0.065 = 2.17815 33.51 + 2.17815 = 35.68815 = 35.69
