I purchased a hair-dryer for ₹ 5,400 including 8% VAT. Find the price before VAT was added.
Price of a hairdryer with VAT = ₹ 5400
VAT% = 8%
Let the initial price of the hairdryer be ₹ x
Price of hairdryer with VAT is ₹ 5400
VAT % = 8%
VAT = 8% of the initial price of hairdryer
So, the initial price of hairdryer + VAT = 5400
x + 8% × x = 5400
x + (8x/100) = 5400
(108x/100) = 5400
x = 5400 × (100/108)
x = ₹ 5000
