**1. During a sale, a shop offered a discount of 10% on the marked prices of all the items. What would a customer have to pay for a pair of jeans marked at Rs. 1450 and two shirts marked at Rs. 850 each?**

**SP = MP ×**1 − discount 100

**Thus, the customer will have to pay ₹ 2,835**.

**2. The price of a TV is Rs. 13,000. The sales tax charged on it is at the rate of 12%. Find the amount that Vinod will have to pay if he buys it.**

**The required amount that has to be paid = ₹ 14,560.**

**3. Arun bought a pair of skates at a sale where the discount given was 20%. If the amount he pays is Rs. 1,600, find the marked price**.

**Thus, the marked price for the skates is ₹ 2000**.

**4. I purchased a hair-dryer for Rs. 5,400 including 8% VAT. Find the price before VAT was added**.

**Thus, the price of hair-dryer before the addition of VAT = ₹ 5000**.

**5. An article was purchased for Rs. 1239 including GST of 18 %. Find the price of the article before GST was added?**

**x is the price before addition of GST**.
