    A store purchases televisions from a factory for $87.89 each. The store normally sells one of these televisions for 225% of the factory cost, but a store coupon gives 25% off this selling price. Ignoring tax, how much does a customer with this coupon pay for the television? Express your answer in dollars to the nearest hundredth.
