Lunch cost them \$ 47.26

Step-by-step explanation:

We have the list of purchases they made as follows;

2 hamburgers = \$5.49 + \$5.49 = \$ 10.98

1 chicken sandwich = \$ 6.25

1 order of ribs = \$ 12.99

4 soft drinks =\$1.75 + \$1.75 + \$1.75 + \$1.75=  \$ 7

for a total of

\$10.98 + \$6.25 + \$12.99 + \$7 = \$ 37.22

They paid a 20% tip for the value of the purchase that equals;

\$37.22 * 0.20 = \$7.44

taxes are also calculated according to the total purchase without including tips, as follows;

\$37.22 * 0.7 = \$2.60

then lunch cost them;

\$37.22 + \$7.44 + \$2.60 = \$ 47.26
