Question 2.
Abhishek Purchase a bicycle costing ₹ 12,000. If the rate of sales tax is 9%. Calculate the total amount payable by him.
Total amount paid = M.P + ST % (M.P)
= 12,000+ 9% of 12,000
= 12,000 + $$\frac{9}{100}$$ x 12,000
= 12,000 + 1080 = 13,080.

S.T = 10% of S.P. Let M.P = x, S.T = ?
Total amount paid (S.P)  = M . P +S.T% of M.P
17,000 = x + 10% (x) ∴ S.T = S.P-M.P
= 17,000 – 15454
=1546.

A Furniture dealers sold furniture for ₹ 21,000 and added 5% S.T to the Quoted price. The customer agrees to buy it for ₹ 21,000 including S.T. Find the discount he received. Answer:
Discount = Discount % of P

$$\frac{5}{100}$$ x 21,000
∴ Customer received discount = ₹ 1050
Amount to be paid = 21,000 + 5% (21,000)                                                 .
= 21,000 + 1050
= 22,050.

Question 6.

VAT paid by the shopkeeper

C.P2000                                             2300
Vat 12% on 2000                              Vat 12% on 2300
$$\frac{12}{100}$$ x 2,000 = 240            $$\frac{12}{100}$$ x 2300 = 276
∴ VAT charged = 276 – 240 = 36
∴ Total tax paid to government
= 240 + 36
= ₹ 276.

A shopkeeper purchased an electric iron of ₹ 1000 at 8% VAT from the wholesaler and sell it to customer of ₹ 1400 at 8% VAT.
For whole saler Vat = 8% of 1000
= $$=\frac{8 \times 1000}{100}= ₹ 80$$
For buyer Vat = 8% of 1400
= $$\frac{8 \times 1400}{100}$$ = ₹ 112
S.P= 112, C.P = 80
∴ Vat = S.P – C.P
= 112 – 80
= ₹ 32.

17,600 = x + 10% of x S.T = S.P – M.P
= 17,600 – 16,000
