    Answer:

    $8.48

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total of Items:

    Add up the prices of all the items he bought

    soup+oranges+newspaper

    1.99+3.49+2.50=7.98

    $7.98

    Sales Tax:

    Multiply his total by the sales tax rate

    7.98*6.25%

    Convert 6.25% to a decimal

    6.25/100=0.0625

    7.98*0.0625=0.49875

    0.49875

    Total With Tax

    Add the tax to his total without tax

    7.98+0.49875=8.47875

    Round to the nearest cent, or hundreth

    $8.48
