#### Solution

Let the basic price of the soooter be x

Rate of sales tax = 11 %

Therefore, total price of the T.V. set =

Rs  "x"  + ("x" xx 11)/100

= Rs (111  "x")/100

Total price of the soooter given = Rs 37,462.50

therefore (111 "x")/100 = "Rs"  37462.50

⇒  111 x - Rs 37,46,250

⇒ x = Rs 3746250/111

⇒ x = Rs 33750

Hence, the basic price of the soooter = Rs 33, 750
