If the total bill at a restaurant, including a 15% tip, is \$65.32, what was the cost of the meal alone?

1.15 X = \$65.32

I am assuming that you can solve this equation for X (the cost of the meal alone). If you cannot, respond to this post with more questions.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
