Reverse percentage calculations

A reverse percentage calculation involves finding the original amount when given the final amount afer a specified percentage change has been applied.

Example: A 20% increase for VAT has been applied to the cost of a TV, which now costs £180 after this increase has been applied. What was the cost before the percentage increase for VAT was applied? (answer = £150)
