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.

Calculate the sales tax rate: 8% of the cost of the ring.

Sales tax rate = 8% of $899

Using the calculator:

Sales tax =0.08*899=71.92
