Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
If the Inn charges $205.20 after a tax of 8% is implemented, what is the charge per night before the tax?
we take 205.20 = 108%
what is the 100%?
(100x205.20)/ 104 = $190 per night
Equation to the model will be:
X + 0.08X = 205.20 Answer
