 Ramela bought Shirts worth ₹ 2000 ,  Bags worth ₹  1800 and miscellaneous items worth ₹ 2850. If the sales tax is charged 5 % on shirts , 12 % on bags and 4 % on the miscellaneous items. Find the total amount spent by Ramela. 


  1. ₹ 2964

  2. ₹ 7080

  3. ₹ 5064

  4. ₹ 2016


Solution

The correct option is B

₹ 7080


The cost of the shirt = ₹ 2000
Sales tax on shirt is charged at 5 % 
Hence the total amount spent on the  shirt = 2000 + 5100× 2000
                                                   = ₹ 2000 + 100
                                                   = ₹ 2100

The cost of the bags  = ₹ 1800
Sales tax on bags is charged at 12 % 
Hence the total amount on bags = 1800 + 12100× 1800
                                                   = ₹ 1800 + 216
                                                   = ₹ 2016

The cost of the Miscellaneous items = ₹ 2850
Sales tax on Miscellaneous items is charged at 4 % 
Hence the total amount on Miscellaneous items = 2850 + 4100× 2850
                                                                              = ₹ 2850 + 114.0
                                                                               = ₹ 2964

Hence the total amount paid = 2100 + 2016 + 2964
                                              = ₹ 7080
