It will take off taxes and a little more maybe like 22

Divide 18 by 100

= 18/100

multiple that by $26…

that’ll give you the discount

subtract that number from 26

that’ll give you the final price

18/100 = .18

.18 times 26 = $4.68

it’s a $4.68 discount

26 – 4.68 = 21.32

You can’t use a calculator?!?!?!

Really??????

Is over of = percent over 100.

You will have one variable, x.

So.

26 for is. / x. = 18/100. Now cross multiply, then divide so your equation reads. X=…. solve for X

And the discount is not included it is deducted. You have more troubles than just math. You do not understand the language either written or spoken.

21.32

The math is quite simple. Okay so we want to know how much is the 82% percent since it’s been discounted 18% of a 100%, which is the full $26. Convert the percent to decimal 82%=.82 multiply times the full amount($26). If you want to know the tax just multiply anything times 1.0825

100% – 18% = 82%

82% – 0.82

$26 x .82 = $21.32

Answer = $21.32

There are actually several ways to solve this computation.

PS: The primary WORD was DISCOUNT !

Not taxes or or add on s or any thing else.

18% discount folks.

I agree with Pal.

You wording said ‘included’ when you should have said DEDUCTED.

I understand that you may not be English fluent.

Practice make perfect.

Good Luck.

It is be about $21. You should use the calculator in your mobile for this purpose.
