1. The question does not give the required context.

Some countries charge sales tax on labour, and some may not.

I believe Overhead rate would be added to the labour, meaning that for every \$12 paid to the worker, the customer pays \$12(labour)+\$15(overhead)=27.

If sales tax does not apply to labour, then the total bill is:
12*36*(1+1.25)+185*1.07=1169.95

If sales tax applies to labour, then the total bill is:
(12*36*(1+1.25)+185)*1.07=1237.99
