Solution

## The correct option is A Rs.134 Let the reduced price of the coat be Rs.x Sales tax = 8% of x = (8100)× Rs. x = Rs. 2x25 Amount paid by Mia = Rs.(x+2x25) = Rs.27x25 As per problem, 27x25 =1809 Or, x = (2527)× 1809 = 1675 Reduced price of the coat = Rs.1675 Hence, reduction needed = Rs.1809 – Rs.1675 = Rs.134.
