Question 27482: The final cost of the tv is $3,706.30. The local sales tax is 8.1%. What is the labeled pre-tax price?
This is what I did but am not sure if correct.
3706.30/108.1% (converted 8.1% + 100=108.1)
3706.30/1.08= $3,431.76 (my answer)
Is this correct? Answer by stanbon(57347) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Correct because (original price)+0.081(original price)= 3706.30
orig. price = 3706.30/1.081
