    Octagon has 8 sides. If each side is 1 centimeter then the perimeter which is the sum of all sides is,
    1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=8 centimeters.

    25.75+15.49+9.95=51.19

    Now add 8.25 precent of that.
    8.25% of 51.19 = .0825 x 51.19 = 4.223175

    Now add (only need 2 digits because cents are up to 2 digits)
    4.22 + 51.19 = 55.41
