Solution

\[\text { Let the sale price of the set be Rs . x }\]

\[\text { Given that the VAT charged is 10 % } . \]

\[\text { Cost of the set = x + 10 % of x }\]

\[165 = x + 0 . 10x\]

\[165 = 1 . 10x\]

\[x = \frac{165}{1 . 10}\]

\[x =\text {  Rs } . 150\]

\[\text { Thus, the sale price of the set is Rs } . 150 .\]
