#### Solution

Let the basic price of the refrigerator be x

Rate of sales tax = 12 %

Therefore, total price of the refrigerator =

"Rs"  ("x" + ("x" xx 12)/100)

= Rs (112  "x")/100

Total cost of refrigerator given= Rs 30,940

therefore (112  "x")/100 = Rs 30940

⇒ 112 x = Rs30, 94, 000

⇒ x = Rs 3094000/112

⇒ x = Rs 27625

Hence, the basic price of refrigerator = Rs 27,625
