You are on the way to solve the problem.
Let the selling price be = x
So after charging 8% of selling price
x - 0.08x = 117.760 which means
1x - 0.08x = $117.760
= 0.92x = $117.760 (By subtracting the coefficients)
So x = {{{117.760/0.92}}}
= 128
So the selling price = $128 answer
I hope you have understood now.
