Steak 12.95 x 2 = $25.90

wine 6 x 2 = $12

add together for total. $37.90

multiply by 1.08 [1 to equal the total amount, and the .08 to equal the percent of tax]

comes to: $40.93

the other way is to multiply the total of $37.90 by .08 [tax percent as a decimal] and you'll get $3.03 add that, and the total of $37.90.

You will get the same answer either way.
