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. gsm
