Hello,
May you please help me with this question.
Chris bought a game for $26.5, this total is inclusive of 6% tax, Find the price of the game without the tax

No.
Edit: The way to think about taxation is: Value of thing + % of tax = Price

How's it not? He paid $26.50 for the game 6% of that price is the tax, 6% of 26.50 is 1.59 subtract that from 26.50 and you get 24.91?

Well it's 6% of the original, not 6% of the price with tax

Because the 6% is calculated from the price of the game and then added on, so the price he pays ..
Again, not giving out solutions pls. :eek:
