To raise $\$5,999,400$ in taxes, a town charged every taxpayer the same amount. After the tax bill was calculated but before the taxes were due, 12 taxpayers moved away. Revised tax bills required each remaining taxpayer to pay an additional $\$200$. How many taxpayers remain in the town?
Let $x$ be the number of taxpayers before anyone moved out. Before people moved away, the bill was $\$5,999,400/x$ per person. After the bill would be $\$5,999,400/(x-12)$ per person. There is a \$200 diference and you can now write an equation in $x$ and solve.
