The sales price of a television, inclusive of VAT, is Rs 13,500. If VAT charged at the rate of 8% of the list price, find the list price of the television.
Let the list price of the TV be Rs. $x$.
VAT charged $=8 \%$
Cost price of the $T V=R s .13,500$
Cost price of the $T V=x+8 \%$ of $x$
$x=$ Rs. 12,500
Thus, the list price of the TV is Rs. 12,500 .
