Hello,

Chris bought a bag for $26.5, this total is inclusive of 6% tax. How much is the bag without tax?

I got 24.91 :/ is it correct?

No. You can easily check yourself by adding the 6%. In this case, that would give a final price of 24.91*1.06=$26.40, which isn't $26.50.

If the base price were $1, and you added 6%, you'd get $1.06. How many times $1.06 is $26.50? Can you generalise this approach?
