**Total Purchase **

A customer in a store is purchasing five items. Write a program that asks for the price of each item, and then displays the subtotal of the sale, the amount of sales tax, and the total. Assume the sales tax is 6 percent.

**Solution**

*#ask price of each item*

*item1 = float(input(“Enter the price of item1: “))*

*item2 = float(input(“Enter the price of item2: “))*

*item3 = float(input(“Enter the price of item3: “))*

*item4 = float(input(“Enter the price of item4: “))*

*item5 = float(input(“Enter the price of item5: “))*

*#calculate the subtotal of 5 items*

*subTotal = (item1 + item2 + item3 + item4 + item5)*

*#calculate the tax*

*salesTax = subTotal * 0.06*

*#calculate toal*

*total = subTotal + salesTax*

*#disply subtotal,saletax,total*

*print(“sub total :”,format(subTotal , ‘,.2f’))*

*print(“sales tax :”,format(salesTax , ‘,.2f’))*

* *

*print(“total :”,format(total , ‘,.2f’))*
