The sales tax is 12% in state a. In state b, the sales tax is 9%. If a music disc in state a is 5 dollars, and in state b it’s 8 dollars, how much, counting sales tax, would a disc from state a and B cost?

Assuming when you say a music disc in state a is 5 dollars, you mean without sales tax, then here is the solution:

The total is $1.12(5)+1.09(8)=5.60+8.72=\boxed{14.32}$ dollars
