    3.75\% = \frac{3.75}{100} = 0.0375
    5\% = \frac{5}{100} = 0.05

    so your question is:
    x + ((x - 500000)*5\%)+7600) + (x*3.575\%) = 3000000
    x + ((x - 500000)*0.05)+7600) + (x*0.0375) = 3000000

    Expand brackets

    x + ((0.05x - 500000*0.05)+7600) + (x*0.0375) = 3000000

    x + ((0.05x - 25000)+7600) + (x*0.0375) = 3000000

    x + 0.05x - 17400)+ (0.0375x) = 3000000

    collect "x" terms

    1.0875x - 17400 = 3000000

    You finish
