Turn the algebra into English.

Define your variable.

Let x = your figure

Note that to find a percentage of a number, you must convert your percent to a decimal and then multiply. To convert a percentage to a decimal, divide it by 100 (move the decimal two places to the left).

Your calculation is

(x - 0.075x) - (0.19)(x - 0.075x)

= (0.74925)x
