Sales Tax

Students solve word problems using the "sales tax" formula, which states: purchase price x sales tax rate = sales tax. Students also solve word problems using the "total price" formula, which states: purchase price + sales tax = total price. For example: The sales tax rate in Iowa City, Iowa, is 7%. How much sales tax is charged on a graphing calculator that costs $82? What is the total price?
