#### Question

Sarita purchases biscuits costing Rs 158 on which the rate of sales tax is 6%. She also purchases some cosmetic goods costing Rs 354 on which the rate of sales tax is 9%. Find the total amount to be paid by Sarita

#### Solution

Sale price of biscuits = Rs 158

Rate of sales tax on biscuits= 6%

Amount paid for biscuits= Rs 158 + 6% of Rs 158

`= Rs 158 + 6/100 xx 158`

= Rs 158 + Rs 9.48

= Rs 167.48

Sale price of cosmetic goods = Rs 354

Rate of sales tax= 9%

Amount paid for cosmetic goods = Rs 354 + 9% of Rs 354

`= Rs 354 + 9/100 xx 354`

= Rs 354 + Rs 31.86

= Rs 385.86

Total amount paid by Sarita = Rs 167.48 + Rs 385.86

= Rs 553.34
