C.P. = Rs.5,400 and Rate of VAT = 8%

Let C.P. without VAT is Rs. 100, then price including VAT = 100 + 8 = Rs.108

∵ When price including VAT is Rs.108, then original price = Rs.100

∴ When price including VAT is Rs.1, then original price =

∴ When price including VAT is Rs.5400, then original price = = Rs.5000

Alternate Method:
C.P including VAT = Rs. 5400, VAT = 8%
Let the amount before VAT = x
Now including VAT in X we get, CP = x + 8% of x = 5400

Thus, Price before VAT was applied was Rs. 5000
