Sum

Find the rate of sales tax of the following items whose marked price and sales tax are given below:

 S.No Item Marked Price Sales Tax i Shoes Rs. 2,740.00 Rs 137.00 ii music system Rs. 16,400.00 Rs 2,050.00 iii vacuum cleaners Rs. 8,325.00 Rs 1,332.00 iv Digital diary Rs. 3,500.00 Rs 367.50 v VCD Rs. 27,916.00 Rs 4,047.82

#### Solution

Rate of sales tax = (100 xx "salestax")/"marked price"

(i) Sales tax = Rs 137
Marked Price = Rs 2,740

r = (100 xx 137)/(2,740)=5%

Rate of sales tax = 5%

(ii) Sales tax = Rs 2,050
Marked Price = Rs 16,400

r = (100 xx 2,050)/(16,400)=12.5%

Rate of sales tax = 12.5%

(iii) Sales tax = Rs 1,332
Marked Price = Rs 8,325

r = (100 xx 1,332)/(8325)=16%

Rate of sales tax = 16%

(iv) Sales tax = Rs 367. 50
Marked Price = Rs 3,500

r = (100 xx 367.50)/(3,500)=(100 xx 36750)/(3,500 xx 100)=10.5%

Rate of sales tax = 10.5%

(v) Sales tax= Rs 4,047.82
Marked Price = Rs 27,916

r = (100 xx 4,047.82)/(27,916)=(100 xx 4,04,782)/(27,916 xx 100)=14.5%

Rate of sales tax = 14.5%

Is there an error in this question or solution?
