1) convert to yards
$$14ft\times12ft\Rightarrow\frac{14}{3}yds\times\frac{12}{3}yds$$

2) find area of the floor
$$A=lw=\frac{14}{3}yd*\frac{12}{3}yd=\frac{56}{3}yd^2$$

3) multiply area by price to get price before taxes
$$13.99/yd^2*\frac{56}{3}yd^2=261.15$$

4) get price after taxes (multiply price before taxes by 1+tax% [tax% in decimal form] for each tax)
$$261.15*1.05*1.07=293.40$$
