Answer:

$5.40

Step-by-step explanation:

First, figure out the cost of the items with tax; for Tommy we have 20*0.08 = 1.6, add that 1.6 to the 20 and his purchase is $21.6, for John we have 25*0.08 = 2, add 2 to his 25 and his purchase is $27. To find the difference we subtract 27-21.6 = 5.4 or $5.40
