# Thread: Calculate price before tax

1. ## 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?

The value you now have is the original value with the 7% of the original value added.

7% of an amount is $\frac{7}{100}=0.07$ of that amount

So you can say

$4650=(1.07)original.$

Therefore the original pre-Shipping&Tax amount is

$\frac{4650}{1.07}$
