Try it 118.65(95)/100
112?
1.05 of x is 118.65, right? So divide 118.65 by 1.05 to get x.

i dont realy get it
You are trying to find x, the original cost
105% of x is 118.65
So divide 118.65 by 1.05 (105%) to get x
x is 118.65/1.05
Original cost will be 100% -5% =95%because which you paid already included the tax.
