A bicycle has a listed price of $811.99 before tax. If the sales tax rate is 6.5% , find the total cost of the bicycle with sales tax included.
Round your answer to the nearest cent, as necessary.


  1. Answer:
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Since it is a sales tax, and not something else, we would add a 1 on the front of it, to essentially just “add” back that 811.99, even though it is multiplication. 1.065 times 811.99 is the same as (811.99x.065)+811.99.
