If you buy 2 pairs of shoes for 50.92 each and the register multiplies the total by 1.07 to find the total cost including tax What change do you get if you pay 200 dollars?

The two pair of shoes cost 2 x 50.92 = 101.84

The tax is 7% (multiplication is 1.07 of the total) = 101.84 x 1.07 = 108.9688

This rounds up to 108.97, and 200.00 - 108.97 = $ 91.03 in change.
