Vikram bought a watch for Rs 825.

Question:

Vikram bought a watch for Rs 825. If this amount includes 10% VAT on the list price, what was the list price of the watch?

Solution:

Let the list price of the watch be Rs. $x$.

Then,

$x+\frac{10}{100} x=825$

$x+0.1 x=825$

$1.1 x=825$

$x=\frac{825}{1.1}$

$=$ Rs. 750

Thus, the list price of the watch is Rs. 750 .
