#1**+1 **

12.5% is the same as 0.125, so is what you are asking equivalent to @-0.125@=8560?

#2**+1 **

If so, then I'll rewrite it as x-0.125x=8560 just for clarity (it is easier to read like that).

\(x-0.125x=8560\)

First, I would factor an x out of the left side.

\(x(1-0.125)=8560\)

Subtract 0.125 from 1

\(x(0.875)=8560\)

Divide both sides by 0.875.

8560/0.875 = 9782.85714

\(x=9,782.85714\)

So your @ number is **9,782.85714**. (If you round up at all, it won't work.)
