#### Answer

Total purchase: $\$110.68$

#### Work Step by Step

We are told that Julia bought two fishing rods for $\$59$ and $\$36$. Thus the total was:
$\$59+\$36=\$95$
First, we find the excise tax. We see from the table that the rate is 10% for fishing rods:
Excise tax: $95*0.1=\$9.5$
Next, we find the sales tax. We are told that the rate is $6\frac{1}{2}\%=6.5\%=0.065$. Thus we have:
Sales tax: $95*0.065=\$6.175\approx \$6.18$
Thus Julia's total purchase was:
$\$95+\$6.18+\$9.5=\$110.68$
