Answer:

Nine harnesses cost $161.55.

Cost of harnesses plus tax is $184.17.

Explanation:

Multiply the number of reindeer harnesses by the price per harness.

#(9color(white)(.)cancel"reindeer harnesses")xx($17.95)/(cancel"reindeer harness")=$161.55#

Bonus
Convert #14%# to a decimal by dividing it by 100. #(14)/100=0.14#

Multiply the total cost of harnesses by the percentage in decimal form.

#161.55xx0.14=$22.62#

Add the tax to the total amount to determine the total cost including tax.

#161.55+22.62=$184.17#
