# Shyama purchases a scooter costing Rs 36,450 and the rate of sales tax is 9%, then the total amount paid by her is

(a) Rs 36,490.50

(b) Rs 39,730.50

(c) Rs 36,454.50

(d) Rs 33,169.50

**Solution:**

The cost price of the scooter = Rs. 36,450

The sales tax is applicable on the cost price. The applicable rate is 9%. Therefore,

Sales Tax = 9% of 36,450

= (9/100) × 36,450

= (9/10) × 3645

= Rs. 3280.50

Hence the amount paid by Shyama is :

Price Paid = Rs. 36,450 + Rs. 3280.50

= Rs. 39,730.50

**✦ ****Try this: **Shyama purchases a scooter costing Rs 32,450 and the rate of sales tax is 12%, then the total amount paid by her is _______.

The cost price of the scooter = Rs. 36,450

The sales tax is applicable on the cost price. The applicable rate is 9%. Therefore,

Sales Tax = 12% of 32,450

= (12/100) × 36,450

= (12/10) × 3245

= Rs. 3894.00

Hence the amount paid by Shyama is :

Price Paid = Rs. 32,450 + Rs. 3894

= Rs. 36,344
