# The following items are purchased from showroom:

T-Shirt worth Rs 1200.

Jeans worth Rs 1000.

2 Skirts worth Rs 1350 each.

What will these items cost to Shikha if the sales tax is 7%?

Answer :

Given, Cost of T-shirt = RS.1200

Also, cost of Jeans = Rs 1000.

And cost of Skirts = Rs 1350

Here, 2 skirts = 1350 + 1350 = 2700

We need to find out cost of items with sales tax

⇒ Total cost = 1200 + 1000 + 2700

= Rs. 4900

⇒ Sikha have to pay sales tax = 7%

Now, we know that the TotalSalesTax = Cost x SalesTax

⇒ TotalSalesTax

= 343

⇒ Now, The cost price with the sales tax TotalCost = Cost +

TotalSalesTax.

⇒ Total cost = 4900 + 343

= Rs. 5243

So, the total cost to be paid to sikha is Rs. 5243
