I think, the TAX is equal 0.07 not 0.7
[latex]0.07=0.07\times100\%=7\%\\100\%+7\%=107\%- with\ TAX\\\\107\%=\frac{107}{100}=1.07\\\\1.07\times24.75=26.4825-cost\ with\ TAX\\\\100\%-10\%=90\%-subtract\ off\\\\90\%=\frac{90}{100}=0.9\\\\0.9\times26.4825=23.83425\approx\boxed{23.84}\leftarrow answer[/latex]
