The price of a TV (before tax) is a whole number of dollars and is the same in Alberta and in BC. That tax is 7% in Alberta and 15% in BC. After the tax is applied the TV costs $10 more in BC than in Alberta. What is the before-tax price (in dollars) of a TV?

15 -7  = 8% difference = $10

8% x = 10

.08x = 10

x = $125
