Total cost: $1248+96.72+15.40=\$1360.12$

Work Step by Step

We see from the table that the excise tax is a flat fee of $\$15.40$ per person for international air travel. Next, we find the sales tax on $\$1248$ using the given rate of $7\frac{3}{4}\%$ (0.0775): $0.0775*1248=\$96.72$ Thus the total cost is: $1248+96.72+15.40=\$1360.12$
