Sam bought a stereo for a total of \$676.24, including state sales tax. The state sales tax rate is 7%. The total amount of sales tax on the stereo was \$44.24.
Price before sales tax: \$676.24/1.07=\$632.
To calculate sales tax, either subtract the price from the total after taxes (676.24-632=44.24) or multiply the price by 7% (632*.07=44.24)
