Answer:$90.10Step-by-step explanation:price of the skateboard = $85

sales tax = 6%

Dollar value of sales tax = 6% of price of the skateboard

= 6% of $85 = (6/100) * $85 = ( 6* 85)/100 = $ 5.10

Total cost of the skateboard = price of the skateboard + sales tax value

substituting the value of price of the skateboard and sales tax value, calculated above, we have

Total cost of the skateboard = $85 + $ 5.10 = $90.10
