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 % 


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 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
