**Question:**

Ajit buys a motorcycle for Rs 17600 including value added tax. If the rate of VAT is 10%, what is the sale price of the motorcycle?

**Solution:**

Let the sale price of the motorcycle be Rs $x$.

Cost including VAT $=10 \%$ of $x+x$

$17600=\frac{10}{100} \times x+x$

$17600=0.10 x+x$

$1.10 \mathrm{x}=17600$

$x=\frac{17600}{1.10}$

$=16000$

Thu $s$, the sale price of the motorcycle is Rs 16000 .
