#### Question

A bicycle is available for Rs 1,664 including sales tax. If the list price of the bicycle is Rs 1,600, find :

(1) the rate of sales tax.

(2) the price, a customer will pay for the bicycle if the sales tax is increased by 6%.

#### Solution

Price of bicycle inclusive of sales tax = Rs 1,664

List price of bicycle = Rs 1,600

∴ "Rate of sales tax" = "sales tax"/"list price" xx 100% = 64/1600 xx 100% = 4%

2) New rate of sales tax =(4+6)% = 10%

New total price = Rs 1,600+ 10% of Rs 1,600

= Rs 1600 + 10/100 xx 1600

= Rs 1600 + Rs 160

= Rs 1760
