    Answer: The total cost of their meal with tax= $23.49

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given: Cost of the three dinners before tax = $21.65

    Tax = 8.5%

    Tax amount = 8.5% of ( Cost of the three dinners before tax)

    = (0.085) x 21.65        [0.085 = 8.5%]

    = $1.84025 ≈ $ 1.84

    The total cost of their meal with tax = Cost + Tax amount

    = 21.65 + 1.84

    = $23.49

    Hence, the total cost of their meal with tax= $23.49
