Total cost for the feeders and weather centers is $214.37.

Work Step by Step

Total cost includes the price of the feeder multiplied by 5 plus the price of the weather center multiplied by 6, sales tax on that amount at a rate of 5%, and the cost of shipping based on the cost of the feeders and weather centers. $c=(19.99\times5)+(14.99\times6)=99.95+89.94=189.89$ $t=189.89\times0.05=9.49$ Shipping is 14.99 for goods costing over 100.00. $tc=189.89+9.49+14.99=214.37.$
