Calculate price before tax
I used to know how to do this but, at 62, have forgotten. I know the final price; $4650.00. I know the shipping/handling charge is 7%. How do I calculate the cost BEFORE shipping/handling is added?

Re: Calculate price before tax
The value you now have is the original value with the 7% of the original value added.
7% of an amount is [tex]\frac{7}{100}=0.07[/tex] of that amount
So you can say
[tex]4650=(1.07)original.[/tex]
Therefore the original preShipping&Tax amount is
[tex]\frac{4650}{1.07}[/tex]
