  2. Answer:

    $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 🙂
