Question 4.

Bharath bought a shirt for ₹ 336, including 12% sales tax and a necktie for ₹ 110 including 10% sales tax. Find the printed price of shirt and necktie together,

Solution:

Given S.P = ₹ 336, S.P (neck tie) = 110/

Let C.P of shirt = x, & C.P of neck tie = y

Here, setting price of shirt = C.P + 12% of C.P

336 = x + \(\frac{12 x}{100}\)

336 = \(=\frac{112 x}{100}\) ⇒ x = \(\frac{33600}{112}\)

Selling price of neck tie = C.P + 10% of C.P

110 = y + \(\frac{10 y}{100}\)

110 = \(\frac{10 y}{100}\) ⇒ \(\frac{1100}{11}\) = 100

∴ Printed price of shirt & neck tie = 300 + 100 = ₹ 400

Question 5.

A furniture dealers sold furniture for ₹ 21,000 and added 5% S.T. to the quoted price. The pay for the same item if the ST is reduced to 6%.

Solution:

Given S.P = 21,000, Sales tax = 5%, Discount = ?

S.P = C.P + 5% of S.T on C.P

21,000 = x+ \(\frac{5 x}{100}\)

21000 = \(\frac{105 x}{100}\)

x = \(\frac{21000 \times 100}{105}\) = 20000

Customer buys it for 21,000

∴ Tax paid = 1000

Let the discount be y%

∴ \(\frac{20000}{100} y\) = 1000

y = \(\frac{1000}{200}\) = 5%

Question 6.

A shopkeeper sells an item at the price of ₹ 810 including ST of 8% what should a customer pay for the same item if the ST is reduced to 6%.

Solution:

Given S.P = 810, S.T = 8%

S.P = C.P + 8% of C.P

810 = \(x+\frac{8 x}{100}=\frac{108 x}{100}\)

⇒ x = \(\frac{81000}{108}\) = 750

∴ Cost price 750

S.P=750 + \(\frac{750 \times 6}{100}\) = 750+ 45 = 795

Customer pay ₹ 795 for the same item if the S.T is reduced to 6%.

Question 7.

The price of T.V. set inclusive of sales tax of 9% is ₹ 13.407. Find its marked price. If the S.T. is increased to

13% how much more does the customer Sneha pay for the T.V.

Solution:

Given S.T = 9%,

S.P = 13,407

S.P = C.P + 9% of C.P

9x 13,407 = x + \(\frac{9 x}{100}\)

13407 =\(\frac{109 x}{100}\) ⇒ x = \(\frac{13407 \times 100}{109}\) = 12300

Sales tax is at 13% i.e., 13% -9% = 4%

Sales tax = 12300 x \(\frac{4}{100} \) = ₹ 492

∴ Customer should pay 492 more.
