    We are given an item cost before tax = $3.

    Sales tax on item = 4.4% of the actual cost.

    We are given actual cost = $3.

    Therefore, 4.4 % of 3 = 0.044 × 3 = $0.132.

    We need to round it to the nearest hundredth or cent that is upto two decimal places.

    0.132 could be round to 0.13.

    Therefore, $0.13 tax would you pay on that item on the given item cost $3.
