we did this yest divide 280.80 by 8
OHH RIGHT! sorry! xD It looked different for some reason.
its cool. tag me if u got more
What?? no don't divide by 8! x + x*0.08 = 280.80 Solve for x
x will the original cost. If you multiply your value of x by 0.08, that will be the taxes and fees
You know what the funny thing is? in mu book it says the answer is $20.80. I'm trying to figure out how they go that. :0
I will :)
Dmezzullo is completely wrong!!!! Look: x + x*0.08 = 280.80 1.08x = 280.80 x=260 So the original cost was 260$ Now multiply 260 by 0.08 260*0.08 = 20.8$
ok Thank you this helps. :) I they meant too.:)
How am i misleading ppl explain tht to me.
Dividing by 8 is completely useless, has nothing to do with the question or the answer and gives you an incorrect answer.
oops! sorry I meant to say i dont think he meant too.
I just told you!! See my previous post about how dividing by 8 is useless
LOl! I think they just made a mistake. Its not worth aruging over. :D
@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
Dividing 280.80 by 8 gives you 35.1, but the answer is 20.8. Clearly does not work
It's not a miscalculation, it's a completely incorrect method of approaching the problem
Or its called im a human that makes mistakes.... Not a "Mr. Know It All Like U."
