# The price of a TV is ₹ 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

**Solution:**

Price of the TV = ₹ 13,000

Sales tax on the TV = 12%

We know that,

Tax = Tax% of Selling Price

Hence, Sales Tax Amount = (12/100) × 13000 = ₹ 1560

Therefore, Amount paid by Vinod = Price of the TV + Sales tax

= 13,000 + 1560

= ₹ 14,560
