#### Question

Mr. Mahajan purchased 100 shares, each of face value Rs. 100, when the market price was Rs. 45 per share, paying 2% brokerage. If the rate of GST on the brokerage is 18%, find the total amount he spent.

#### Solution

Amount spent to purchase 100 shares = 45 × 100 = Rs . 4500

Brokerage = 4500 × `2/100 = Rs . 90`

GST

on brokerage `= 90 × 18/100 = Rs. 16.20`

∴ Total amount = 4500 + 90 + 16.20 = Rs .4606.20
