### Title

Multiplication calculation

### Post

I'm new to FileMaker, and am requesting assistance in setting up a simple price list database.

Said db has a price field, and I wish to calculate sales tax, and show the resulting value in another field.

Can someone please provide some tips for solving this problem?

Many thanks in advance....

Is the tax a percentage? If so, and let's assume it is 10%, your calculation (result is number) would be:

Price + Price * .10

Since multiplication and division comes before addition and subtraction, price * .10 would be computed first and then added to the Price.
