A couple spent $264 in total while dining out and paid this amount using a credit card. The $264 figure included a 20 percent tip which was paid on top of the price of the food which already included a sales tax of 10 percent. What was the actual price of the meal before tax and tip?

A) $184

B) $200

C) $204

D) $216

E) $232

Food Bill = 100 (Say)

Sales Tax = 10

Food Bill + Tax = 110

Tip = 22

Food Bill + Tax + Tip = 132

So, When (Food Bill + Tax + Tip) is 132 , food bill is 100

Or, When (Food Bill + Tax + Tip) is 264 , food bill is \(\frac{100}{132}*264\) = 200

Hence answer will be (B)
