Jake's BBQ sells its sauce for $10.75, including 8.5% tax. To the nearest penny, what is the cost of the sauce before tax?

Did I do this right? 1+0.085x=10.75 1.085x=10.75 10.75/1.085=9.907

$9.91

Yes, you did it right. You may also check your answer by adding 8.5% to it:

8.5% of $9.91 = $0.84, then the price with tax will be $9.91 + $0.84 = $10.75.
