### Answer

Using this method, tax is calculated on the UNIT PRICE and then rounded before any further calculations are done.
For Example:
I wish to sell an item at a gross price of $60, then the tax amount would be 1/11th of $60 (i.e. $5.4545454), which is rounded to a whole cent value of $5.45. This figure is then multiplied by the quantity.
