Question

An article was purchased for Rs. 1239 including GST of 18%. Find the price of the article before GST was added.


Solution

Let the Price of the article before including GST  be x

Price of article including GST =Rs. 1239


GST(Goods and Service Tax) =18% of x=(18×x)100 =0.18×x


Price of article including GST= Price before GST + GST

x+(0.18x)=1239

1.18x=1239

x=12391.18=Rs. 1050 


So, the price of article before GST was added =Rs. 1050
