    the 5% of VAT is computed on the amount 49.30, so the requested cost is: \[\Large 49.30 + \left( {49.30 \cdot \frac{5}{{100}}} \right) = ...?\]

    hint: \[\Large \begin{gathered} 49.30 + \left( {49.30 \cdot \frac{5}{{100}}} \right) = ...? \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = 49.3 + 2.465 = ...? \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]
