    ill assume its (%) 80 + 80(decimal of percent) = total cost: $100 - total cost = change back. 80 + 80(.0825) = Tc 80(1+.0825) = Tc 80(1.0825) = Tc 100 - 80(1.0825) = change back 13.40 is what youll get back if the tax is 8.25%

    it looks kind of like that. We can look at it this way to: $100 - (book price) - (taxes paid on book price) The $100 is money you used to pay for the book; so we are expecting change back for it right?

    100 - 80 - (taxes) = change gotten back

    you just subtract the total cost out of the $100 ( I am assuming a tax of $8.25 in each book).. 100-the total cost= change back... the total cost=80+8.25=88.25 therefor the change back=100-88.25=11.75

    simply: 100-(80+8.25)=11.75
