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.
