Posted by Arkuk on Friday, April 13, 2007 at 6:12pm.

tom paid 695.5 for a tv when 7% sales tax was included in that price what was the price of the tv before the tax and how much sales tax did tom pay?

You can set it up this way:

1.07x = 695.5
x = _______

That will tell you the price of the TV. The difference between 695.5 and the price of the TV is the sales tax.


I really have a hard time in math.So can you help me?
