Answer :

(i) cost of a towel = Rs. 50

Sales tax on a towel = 5% of 50

= Rs. 2.5

∴ sales tax on a towel = Rs. 2.5

Buying price = cost + sales tax

= 50+2.5

= Rs. 52.5

∴ The buying price of a towel = Rs. 52.5

(ii) cost of a soap bar = Rs. 35

Cost of two soap bars = 35×2 = Rs. 70

Sales tax on a soap bars = 5% of 70

= Rs. 3.5

∴ sales tax on a towel = Rs. 3.5

Buying price = cost + sales tax

= 70+3.5

= Rs. 73.5

∴ The buying price of a soap bars = Rs. 73.5
