Eric bought a canoe for $333.75 and the sales tax was 5.25%. If you are trying to calculate the sales tax amount, you just convert the percentage into a decimal, and then multiply it by the price. 5.25% = 0.0525 0.0525 * 333.75 =  17.521875 Therefore, the sales tax amount is approximately $17.52. If you are trying to find the total price of Eric's purchase, you would just add the sales tax to the price of the canoe. 17.52 + 333.75 = $351.27 The total cost of Eric's purchase was approximately $351.27.
