Exercise 13.3
1. The list price of a refrigerator is Rs.9700. If a valueadded tax of 6% is to be charged on it, how much one has to pay to buy the refrigerator?
Solution:
List price of the refrigerator = Rs. 9700
VAT = 6%
So, VAT = 6% of Rs.9700
= (6/100) × 9700
= Rs. 582
So, the total amount one has to pay is (Rs. 9700 + Rs.582) = Rs.10282
The total amount one has to pay is Rs. 10282.
2. Vikram bought a watch for Rs. 825. If this amount includes 10% VAT on the list price, what was the list price of the watch?

3. Aman bought a shirt for Rs. 374.50 which includes 7 % VAT. Find the list price of the shirt.
Solution:
Let the list price of the shirt be Rs. x

The list price of the shirt is Rs. 350.
4. Rani purchases a pair of shoes whose sale price is Rs.175. if she pays VAT at the same rate of 7%, how much amount does she pay as VAT? Also, find the net value of the pair of the pair of shoes.
Solution:
Given, S.P of the pair of shoes = Rs.175
VAT = 7%
Therefore, 7% of 175
= (7/100) × 175
= Rs. 12.25
Rani has to pay Rs.12.25 as VAT
Total cost = Rs. 175 + Rs.12.25 = Rs. 187.25
5. Swarna paid Rs. 20 as Vat on a pair of shoes worth Rs.250. find the rate of the VAT.
Solution:
Given, amount paid by Swarna for a pair of shoes = Rs.250

Let the rate of VAT be x%
Then, x% of 250
= 2.5x = 8
= x = 8
Swarna paid 8% VAT on the pair of shoes.
6. Sarita buys goods worth Rs. 5500. She gets a rebate of 5% on it. After getting the rebate if VAT at the rate of 5% is charged, find the amount she will have to pay for the goods.

7. Swarna paid Rs. 20 as Vat on a pair of shoes worth Rs.250. find the rate of the VAT.
Solution:
Given, amount paid by Swarna for a pair of shoes = Rs.250
VAT paid by her = Rs. 20
Let the rate of VAT be x%

= (x/100) × 250 = 8
= 2.5x = 8
= x = 8
Swarna paid 8% VAT on the pair of shoes.
8. Sarita buys goods worth Rs.5500. she gets a rebate of 5% on it. After getting the rebate if VAT at the rate of 5% is charged, find the amount she will have to pay for the goods.

The amount to be paid for the goods = Rs. (5225+261.25) = Rs 5486.25
9. The cost of furniture inclusive of the VAT is Rs. 7150. If the rate of the VAT is 105, find the original cost of the furniture.
Solution:
Cost of the furniture inclusive VAT = Rs. 7150
Let the original cost of the furniture be Rs. x
Cost of the furniture = 10% of x + x = Rs. 7150
= 1.10x = 7150
= x = Rs.6500
Thus, the original cost of the furniture is Rs. 6500.
10. A refrigerator is available for Rs. 13750 including VAT. If the rate of the VAT is 10%, find the original cost of the furniture.
Solution:
Cost of the refrigerator inclusive VAT is = Rs. 13750
Let the original cost of the furniture be Rs. x
Cost of the furniture = 10% of x + x = 13750
=1.10x = 13750
= x = Rs. 12500
Thus, the original cost of the furniture is Rs. 12500
11. A color TV is available for Rs. 134400 inclusive of VAT. If the original cost of the TV is Rs. 12000, find the rate of VAT.
Solution:
Cost price of the TV including VAT = Rs. 13440
Let the rate of VAT be x%
Cost of the TV = x% of 1200 +1200
= 1344012000 = 120x
= 120x = 1440
= x= 12
Thus, the rate of the VAT on the color TV is 12%
12. Reena goes to a shop to buy a radio, costing Rs. 2568. The rate of the VAT is 7%. She tells the shopkeeper to reduce the price of the radio such that she has to pay Rs. 2568, inclusive of VAT. Find the reduction needed at the price of radio.
Solution:
Let the reduced price, excluding VAT, of the radio be Rs. x
Then, vat = 7% of Rs. x
= 0.07x
S.P OF THE RADIO = Rs. x + Rs. 0.07x
= 1.07x
But, S.P = Rs. 2568
= 1.07x=2568
= x = Rs. 2400
Hence, the reduction in the price of the radio = Rs. 2568 – Rs 2400
= Rs. 168
The reduction of the price of the radio is Rs. 168.
13. Rajat goes to a departmental store and buys the following articles:
Item

4% 
Calculate the total amount he has to pay to the store.
Solution:
Given,
CP OF 2 PAIR OF SHOES = Rs. 800×2 = Rs. 1600
Rate of vat = 5%
So,
∴ Amount Rajat needs to pay for 2 teasets = Rs. (1300+52) = Rs. 1352
Hence,
Total amount Rajat needs to pay = Rs (1680+1590+1352) = Rs. 4662

VAT = 1%
Total amount paid for clothes = Rs. (400+4) Rs. 404
(iv) Given,
Cost of cosmetics = Rs. 150
VAT = 10%
Vat = 10 %
Total amount paid for cosmetic = Rs (150+15) = Rs 165
Hence,

17. Rajeeta purchased a set of cosmetics. She paid Rs.165 for it including VAT. If the rate of Vat is 10%, find the sale price of the set.
Solution:
Let the sale price of the set be Rs. x
Given that the VAT charged is 10%

18. Sunita purchases a bicycle for Rs.660. she has paid a VAT of 10%. Find the list price of the bicycle.
Solution:
Let the sale price of the bicycle be Rs. x

= 1.10x = 660
= x = Rs.600
Thus, the list price of the bicycle is Rs. 600
19. The sales price of a television, inclusive of the VAT is Rs.13500. if the VAT is charged at the rate of 8 % of the list price, find the list price of the television.
Solution:
Let the list price be the TV be Rs. x
VAT charged = 8%
Given, cost price of the TV = Rs. 13500
So, cost price of the TV = x + 8% of x
= x+ 0.08x = 13500
= x = 12500
Thus the list price of the TV is Rs. 12500
20. Shikha purchased a car with marked price Rs.210000 at a discount of 5%. If the VAT is charged at the rate of 10%, find the amount she had paid for purchasing the car.
Solution:
Marked price of the car = Rs. 210000
Discount allowed = 5%
Therefore, discount = 5% of 210000
= Rs. 19950
Thus, the amount paid by shikha to the car = Rs. 199500+ Rs. 19950
= Rs. 219450
21. Shikha purchased a car with a marked price of Rs. 210000 at a discount of 5%. If VAT is charged at the rate of 10%, find the amount Shikha had paid for purchasing the car.
