#### Solution

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

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

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

$165 = x + 0 . 10x$

$165 = 1 . 10x$

$x = \frac{165}{1 . 10}$

$x =\text { Rs } . 150$

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