Solution

## Cost price of an article to a distributor = Rs.6000 and selling price of distributor = Rs. 7500 and selling price of trader = Rs.. 8000 Rate of VAT = 12.5% = 252% Now,,VAT for two distributor = Rs. 6000×25100×2 = Rs. 750 and VAT for two trader = Rs. 7500×25100×2 = Rs. 937.50 and VAP for customer = 8000×25100×2 Rs.1000 (i) Now VAT paid by distributor = Rs. 937.50-Rs.750 = Rs. 187.50 (ii) and VAT paid by trader Rs. 1000- Rs.937.50 = Rs.62.50
