Answer!

Let's say that x = the price of the video game before tax is added.

x + .05x = $52.34

Add the two x's together on the left side of the equation:

1.05x = $52.34

Divide both sides by 1.05 to isolate x

1.05x/1.05 = $52.34/1.05

Solving both sides of the equation leaves you with:

x = $49.85
