Joe has $10,000 to purchase a used car. If the sales tax is 7% and the fee for title and license plates is $200, what is the maximum amount Joe can spend for a car?

    Let X stand for the cost of the used car.
    Tax will be 0.07X
    License and title fees = 200.
    Total to spend is 10,000.

    X + 0.07X + 200 = 10,000.
    Solve for X
