Sum

The government seeing the necessity of computers in daily life reduced sales tax on it by 8%. As a result, computers are now cheaper by Rs 2,240. Find the marked price of the computers.

#### Solution

The decrease in price of the oomputers is only because of the decrease in amount of sales tax.

Let marked price be x

And decrease amount of sales tax is

= (decrease in rate of sales tax) x Price/ 100

This amount is given as Rs 2,240.

Also it is given

Decrease in rate of sales tax = 8 %

Therefore:

Rs 2240 = x xx 8/100

Rs 2240 = (2 x)/25

x = Rs (2240 xx 25)/2 = Rs 28000

Thus marked price of the oomputer is Rs. 28,000
