The amount of sales tax is $2.97.

The tax for the shoes: 26.50*0.0825=2.18625

The tax for the shirt: 9.5*0.0825=0.78375

2.18625+0.78375=2.97

Answer:

B. 2.97

Step-by-step explanation:

First, add 26.5 plus 9.5 to get the total of the purchase without tax. Then, create a proportion (8.25/100= x/36). multiply 8.25 by 36, and divide the product by 100 to get 2.97. Hope this helps!
