In Belinda's hometown, the sales tax rate is 7.5%. Belinda is shopping for a new dresser and finds one at a local furniture store for $672.00 plus sales tax. She finds the same dresser on the Internet for $550 from a furniture store in Maine. If she orders the dresser from Maine, there is an additional $95 shipping charge for 3-day delivery, and she will still have to pay the 7.5% sales tax on the dresser, but not on the delivery charge. How much money would Belinda save by ordering the dresser over the Internet instead of buying it locally?
