#### Question

A toy is purchased for Rs. 591.36 which includes 12% rebate on the printed price and 12% sales tax on the sale price of the toy find the printed price of the toy.

#### Solution

Let printed price = Rs. y
Discount% = 12%
∴ Sale price = Rs.y(1-12/100)=yxx88/100=Rs.(22y)/25
Rate of sales tax = 12%
Purchase price= Rs. 591.36
According to question
Sale price + sales tax = Rs. 591.36
Rs.(22y)/25+12% of  (22y)/25 = Rs. 591.36

⇒ (22y)/25+(66y)/625 = Rs. 591.36

⇒ (616y)/625= Rs. 591.36

⇒y=(591.36xx625)/616= Rs. 600 Ans
