Anton bought a picnic cooler. His total bill, with tax, was $7.95. He paid 6 percent sales tax. How much did he pay for the cooler alone without the tax?

Let the price of the Cooler before tax = C

C x [1 + 6%] =$7.95

C x 1.06 =$7.95   Divide both sides 1.06

C = $7.95 / 1.06

C =$7.50 - Price of the Cooler before 6% tax.

Let the cost without the tax  = C

 

So

 

C(1.06)  = 7.95       divide both sides by  1.06

 

C  = 7.95/1.06 ≈    7.5   =    $7.50
