Solution

Sale price of biscuits = Rs 158

Rate of sales tax on biscuits= 6%

Amount paid for biscuits= Rs 158 + 6% of Rs 158

`= "Rs." 158 + 6/100 xx 158`

= Rs. 158 + "Rs." 9.48

= Rs. 167.48

The sale price of cosmetic goods = Rs. 354

Rate of sales tax= 9%

Amount paid for cosmetic goods = Rs 354 + 9% of Rs.354

`="Rs." 354 + 9/100 xx 354`

= Rs. 354 + Rs 31.86

= Rs. 385.86

Total amount paid by Sarita = Rs. 167.48 + Rs. 385.86

=  Rs. 553.34
