Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well 16.368 is the (list price) + tax thus (list price) + (tax) = 16,368 so the list price will be 16,368  tax what if the tax were 6.6%, or 8.25%? well \(\begin{array}{llll} \$&\% \\\hline\\ 16368&100\\ x&6.6 \end{array}\implies \cfrac{16368}{x}=\cfrac{100}{6.6}\implies x=? \\ \quad \\ \quad \\ \begin{array}{llll} \$&\% \\\hline\\ 16368&100\\ x&8.25 \end{array}\implies \cfrac{16368}{x}=\cfrac{100}{8.25}\implies x=? \\ \quad \\ list\ price=16368x\)
