    118.56*.04=4.74 118.56-4.74=113.82

    lets say b= original bill and t= tax so b * (.04) = t so [b * (.04) ] + b = 113.82 So we are trying to find b so we factor b from the left and we get b( .04 + 1.00)= 113.82 b( 1.04)= 113.82 b= (113.82)/(1.04) b=(109.4423) we round it to the one cent b= 109.44
