Answer: Carl paid $25.98 for this DVD in dollars and cents.

Step-by-step explanation:

The original cost of the DVD was $24.00. If a sales tax of 8.25% was charged, it means that the original cost of the DVD would increase by 8.25%.

The value in dollar and cents of an 8.25% increment(sales tax) would be

8.25/100 × 24 = 0.0825 × 24

= $1.98

Therefore, the amount that Carl would pay for this DVD in dollars and cents is

24 + 1.98 = $25.98
