    Answer:

    For the item that costs %58, he should pay $4.06 as sales tax.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x% be the sales tax.

    So, x% of 42 = 2.94.

    \frac{x}{100} × 42 = 2.94

    x = 2.94 × \frac{100}{42}

    = 7

    So, 7% is the sales tax.

    Now, 7% of 58 = \frac{7}{100} × 58

    = 4.06

    294/4200=n/5800
    4200n=1705200
    n=$4.06 sales tax
