The sales tax on a refrigerator at the rate of 9% is Rs. 1,170. Find the actual sale price.

Answer :

Amount of sales tax is 1,170

Rate of sales tax is 9%


Let x be the cost price of refrigerator


Amount of sales tax = (Rate of sales tax) (cost price)


1,170 = 9% (x)


1,170 = x


= x


x = 13,000


Actual cost price of refrigerator is 13,000


selling price = cost price + sales tax


= 13,000 + 1,170


= 14,170
