60.5 because 10 percent of 55 is 5.5, so 55 plus 5.5 is 60.5

Ok so if the jeans cost $55 and the sales tax is 10% then you just have to multiply 55 by .10 to get 5.5 and then add that to the original cost which will give you $60.50 I hope I helped, feel free to ask questions and have a nice day! =D
