#### 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
