    Lets make an equation for this problem:
    P=(1-S)C
    Where P is the price with the discount, S is the sale discount, and C is the cost without the discount.
    So let’s put the known values in
    599.28=(.88)C
    We divide on by sides by .88 to get:
    C=681
    Thus, $681 is the answer.

    599.28 x (12/100) = x
    599.28 + x = answer
