What?? no don't divide by 8!
x + x*0.08 = 280.80
Solve for x

- anonymous

x will the original cost. If you multiply your value of x by 0.08, that will be the taxes and fees

- anonymous

You know what the funny thing is? in mu book it says the answer is $20.80. I'm trying to figure out how they go that. :0

- anonymous

Thank you @dmezzullo

- anonymous

I will :)

- dmezzullo

Np.

- anonymous

Dmezzullo is completely wrong!!!! Look:
x + x*0.08 = 280.80
1.08x = 280.80
x=260
So the original cost was 260$
Now multiply 260 by 0.08
260*0.08 = 20.8$

- anonymous

@dmezzullo don't help people if you have no idea what you're doing, you're misleading people

- anonymous

ok Thank you this helps. :)
I they meant too.:)

- dmezzullo

How am i misleading ppl explain tht to me.

- anonymous

Dividing by 8 is completely useless, has nothing to do with the question or the answer and gives you an incorrect answer.

- anonymous

oops! sorry I meant to say i dont think he meant too.

- anonymous

I recommend you unfan dmezzullo, @GodBlessYou, he's a fraud! :P

- dmezzullo

How am i a fraud? @BluFoot

- anonymous

I just told you!! See my previous post about how dividing by 8 is useless

- dmezzullo

EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT I DID WRONG! @BluFoot SINCE U KNOW EVERYTHING MR KNOW IT ALL.

- anonymous

LOl! I think they just made a mistake. Its not worth aruging over. :D

- dmezzullo

Don't u got some explaining to do @BluFoot

- anonymous

@dmezzullo OK 280.80$ is including sales and taxes. Which means that the original price + the taxes = 280.80
so if we call the original price x then
x + x*8/100 = 280.80
Solve for x and you get the original price. Multiply that value by 8, divide by 100 and you get the taxes

- anonymous

I dont think your a fraud @dmezzullo :) Everyone miscalculates sometime. ;)

- anonymous

Dividing 280.80 by 8 gives you 35.1, but the answer is 20.8. Clearly does not work

- anonymous

It's not a miscalculation, it's a completely incorrect method of approaching the problem

- dmezzullo

Or its called im a human that makes mistakes.... Not a "Mr. Know It All Like U."

- dmezzullo
