# A dining table is purchased for Rs 3,200 and sold at a gain of 6%. If a customer pays sales tax at the rate of 5%. How much does the customer pay in all for the table?

Answer :

Given that, cost price of dining table = Rs. 3,200 And gain on selling = 6% and tax rate = 5%.

We know, Gain = Selling price - Cost price

⇒ selling price = Gain + cost price

= 3200 + 192

= Rs.3392

Now, If a customer pays sales tax at the rate of 5, then -

= Rs.3392 + 169.6

= Rs. 3561.6
