You purchase a shirt for $8.50. There is a 6% sales tax. Your total cost will be A. $8.98 B. $8.55 C. $9.01 D. $13.60

C= 9.01 8.50 times 0.06= 0.51 now add 0.51 plus 8.50=9.01  

The cost of purchasing a shirt = $8.50
Percentage of sales tax that need to be added = 6%
Amount of sales tax that needs to be given = (6/100) * 8.50 dollars
                                                                     = 51/100 dollar
                                                                     = 0.51 dollars
then
The total cost of the shirt = (8.50 + 0.51) dollars
                                         = 9.01 dollars
So the total price of the shirt including tax will be $9.01. the correct option among all the options given in the question is option "C".
