10 I purchased a hair-dryer for Rs 5,400 including 8% VAT. Find the price before VAT was added.
VAT = 8%
Let the original price be Rs. 100
Original price + VAT = Rs. 100 + Rs.
Original price + VAT = Rs. 100 + Rs. 8 = Rs. 108
If the price after VAT is Rs.5400, then the price before VAT is
The price before VAT was added is Rs. 5000.
