He purchased 15 rolls of paper towels for \$0.65 each, 15 bottles of cleaning solution for \$1.25 each, 4 containers of garbage bags for \$2.45 each and 3 new mops for \$6.98 each. He received a 15% discount using his frequent buyer card and the tax was 8.65%. How much total did Stuart spend on cleaning supplies?
