    The total bill would be 67.32 because you have to multiply the tax and tip then add them together

    Step-by-step explanation:

    After eating at your favorite restaurant, you know that the bill before tax is $52.60 and that the sales tax rate is 8%. This means that the amount of sales tax that you would pay is

    8/100 * 52.6 = $4.208

    You decide to leave a 20% tip for the waiter based on the pre-tax amount. This means that the amount you would leave as tip for the waiter is

    20/100 * 52.6 = $10.52

    The total amount that you would pay is

    52.6 + 4.208 + 10.52 = $67.328
