Quantitative Aptitude Question of the day
Question: A shopkeeper charges 8% sales tax on each item he sells. On one day, he had Rs.11160 in the cash register. At the end of the day he had Rs. 29790 in the register. How much money he collected as the sales tax?
1. Rs. 1380
2. Rs. 1490
3. Rs. 1468
4. Rs. 1345.5
Answer: 1 Explanation: The total cash collected = 29790 – 11160 = Rs 18630 The sales tax is 8%. It means that a Rs 100 item will become Rs 108 So, if the cash value is Rs 108, the sales tax collected = Rs 8 If the cash value is Rs 18630, the sales tax collected = [(8/108) x18630] = Rs. 1380
Answer and Explanation
The total cash collected = 29790 – 11160 = Rs 18630
The sales tax is 8%. It means that a Rs 100 item will become Rs 108
So, if the cash value is Rs 108, the sales tax collected = Rs 8
If the cash value is Rs 18630, the sales tax collected = [(8/108) x18630] = Rs. 1380
