Amount of purchase that Steve made = $40 Percentage of tax that Steve needs to pay = 10% Then Amount of tax that Steve needs to pay for the purchase = (10/100) * 40                                                                                           = 1 * 4 dollars                                                                                           = 4 dollars Then The total amount including tax that Steve needs to pay for the purchase = (40 + 4) dollars                                                                    = 44 dollars So the dollar amount of tax that Steve had to pay is $4 and the total amount that Steve had to pay was $44.
