To estimate the amount Darell should leave for a tip rounded up to the next quarter, follow these steps:

Calculate 15% of the bill:
Tip amount = 15% of $21.03
= 0.15 * $21.03
= $3.1555

Round up to the next quarter:
$3.1555 is closest to $3.25 when rounded up to the next quarter.

Therefore, Darell should leave approximately $3.25 as a tip.

Let's calculate the overestimated cost for each item:

Tacos: 6 tacos at $0.69 each = 6 * $0.69 = $4.14

Burritos: 5 burritos at $1.09 each = 5 * $1.09 = $5.45

Soft drinks: 8 soft drinks at $0.79 each = 8 * $0.79 = $6.32

Now, add up the overestimated costs of all items:
$4.14 (tacos) + $5.45 (burritos) + $6.32 (soft drinks) = $15.91

Rounded up to the next quarter dollar, Raymond needs to pay approximately $16.00 for everything.

To estimate the amount of sales tax, follow these steps:

Calculate the sales tax rate: 8% of the cost of the ring.
Sales tax rate = 8% of $899
= 0.08 * $899

Compute the amount of sales tax:
Sales tax = Sales tax rate * Cost of the ring

Using the calculator:
Sales tax =0.08*899=71.92
Therefore, if Amanda and Nathan buy the engagement ring, the estimated amount of sales tax would be approximately $71.92.
