Sum

A dealer in Bihar supplied goods to a dealer in Mumbai. The dealer in Mumbai buys :
(i) 40 articles for 800 each at 30% discount
(ii) 75 articles for 1,000 each at 20% discount.

If the rate of GST, on the whole, is 12%, find how much will the dealer at Mumbai pay to a dealer in Bihar.

#### Solution

The dealer in Mumbai buys :

(i) 40 articles for 800 each at 30% discount

Cost after Discount =(800  - 800xx30/100) = (800 - 240) = 560

Cost for 40 articles = 40 × 560 = 22400

(ii) 75 articles for 1,000 each at 20% discount.

Cost after Discount = (1000 - 20/100xx1000) = (1000 - 200) = 800

Cost for 75 articles = 75 × 800 = 60000

Total Cost = 22400 + 60000 = 82400

Rate of GST = 12 %

GST = (12/100)xx824000  = 9888

dealer at Mumbai pay to dealer in Bihar = 82400 + 9888 = Rs 92288
