#### Question

A shopkeeper announces a discount of 15% on his goods. If the market price of an article, in his shop, is Rs 6,000; how much a customer has to pay for it if the rate of sales tax is 10%?

#### Solution

Marked price of article = Rs 6,000

Sale price after discount = Rs 6,000 – 15% of Rs 6,000

= Rs 6,000 – Rs 900

Rs 5,100

Rate of sales tax = 10%

Cost price for customer = Rs 5,100 + 10% of Rs 5,100

= Rs 5,100 + Rs 510

= Rs 5,610
