\$8.12

Step-by-step explanation:

## 1. Looking at the question

The question says tax will be added to the total purchase price, so not each of them individually.

Prices: \$25, \$35, \$52

Tax rate: 7.25%

## 2. Solving

[tex]25+35+52=112[/tex]

Percent to decimal = x/100

[tex]7.25[/tex]÷[tex]100=0.0725[/tex]

[tex]0.0725[/tex]·[tex]112=8.12[/tex] (this is the tax)

Hope this helped! Please mark brainliest 🙂
