I don't exactly get what you are saying, but what I would do is find 19% of $500, and then subtract it from 500. Let's call that answer x. Then you find 3% of your answer, x, and subtract that, and you have your answer.

If you did that, or something similiar, then you'll probably be okay.

Hope I helped!
