you want an equation right ?
so lets say the initial cost is (i) and (t) is tax percentage
(t)= .05
(i)= unknown
so the total which is 1568.14 is
(i) + (i * t)= 1568.14
we want to know (i * t) which is the portion that is sales tax but we don't know (i) so lets solve for (i)
we can distribute (i) out
(i)* ( 1 + (1 * t))= 1568.14
(i) * (1 + t ) = 1568.14
so (i) = 1568.14 / (1+t)
(i) = 1568.14/ 1.05
now you know what (i) is
so you can solve (i * t) now. Good Luck
