Does a formula exist for this or am I out in left field? Here goes: Where X + 13% of X = 200. Solve X Note  The percentage and the number 200 are arbitrary. Either of these could be infinite.

$X + p\% \text{ of } X = C$ $\left(1+\dfrac{p}{100}\right)X = C$ $X = \dfrac{C}{1+\frac{p}{100}}$ letting $p=13,~C = 200$ $X = \dfrac{200}{1+\frac{13}{100}} \approx 176.99$

Alright then  I figured that there must be a formula as opposed to putting in random numbers to eventually obtain an outcome. Thank You!
