Q

#### Solution

Printed price of the washing machine = Rs. 18000
Discount = 20% of 18000 = 20/100xx18000 = Rs. 3600

Thus, selling price for the wholesaler = Rs. (18000 - 3600) = Rs. 14400
Sales tax paid by shopkeeper = 8% of 14400 = 8/100xx14400 = Rs. 1152
The shopkeeper sells the washing machine for 10% discount on printed price.
Thus, the shopkeeper sell the washing machine to the customer at the price = 18000 - 10/100xx 18000 = 18000 - 1800 = 16200
Thus, the tax charged by the shopkeeper = 8% of 16,200 = Rs. 1296
(i) VAT paid by the shopkeeper = Tax charged - Tax paid
= Rs. (1296 - 1152)
= Rs. 144

(ii) Total amount consumer pays for washing machine = price at which the shopkeeper sells the washing machine + Tax charged by the shopkeeper

= Rs. (16200+1296)
= Rs. 17,496
