Hello. I'd like to ask.. In a situation like, you are ordering something and you would like to know the price of the two items by pointing them. The sentence is directly translated using the native language. Should I use is or are for this sentence?
* How much "are/is" this one and this one?

thanks!

    I think that you are really asking "How much is this one, and (how much is) this one?" so I'd use "is".

    Asking "How much are these two?" as you point to one item after the other, would also work.
