Sum

Umatai purchased following items from a Khadi-Bhandar.
(i) 3 sarees for 560 rupees each.
(ii) 6 bottles of honey for 90 rupees each.
On the purchase, she received a rebate of 12% . How much total amount did Umatai pay?

#### Solution

Cost of each saree = Rs 560

∴ Cost of 3 sarees = 3 × 560 = Rs 1,680

Cost of each bottle of honey = Rs 90

∴ Cost of 6 bottles of honey = 6 × 90 = Rs 540

Total cost of the items purchased = Rs 1,680 + Rs 540 = Rs 2,220

Total rebate received = 12% of Rs 2,220 =  12/100 xx 2220 = Rs 266.40

∴ Total amount paid by Umatai

= Total cost of the items purchased − Total rebate received

= Rs 2,220 − Rs 266.40

= Rs 1,953.60

Thus, the total amount paid by Umatai is Rs 1,953.60.
