Answer:

The total is: $ 1345.5

Step-by-step explanation:

It is given that:

I would like to purchase 20 products at a cost 65.00 per product.

This means that the cost of 20 products will be:

20times 65=$ 1300

Also, there is a sales tax of 3.5%

This means that a person has to pay a extra 3.5% on the total cost of the items he purchased.

i.e. he need to pay 3/5% on $ 1300

This means that the amount of tax he need to pay is: 3.5% of 1300

                                                                              =  3.5%×1300

                                                                             = 0.035×1300

                                                                            = $ 45.5.

Hence, the total cost is: $ 1300+$ 45.5

This means that the total cost is: $ 1345.5
