It’s kind of frightening that in an office of people with banking backgrounds, accounting backgrounds, and managers, I was the only one who could determine the tax portion of a total that includes tax when all that is known is that total and the tax rate. I guess seventh-grade algebra does come in handy once in a while.
Maybe I’ll get to use calculus next month. It would be the first time since high school for me. Perhaps I should have been an engineer.
