QA – Placement Quizzes | Percentages | Question 6

Barack spends Rs 6650 to buy some goods and gets a rebate of 6% on it. After this, he pays a sales tax of 10%. What is his total expenditure?
(A) Rs 6870.10
(B) Rs 6876.10
(C) Rs 6865.10
(D) Rs 6776.10


Answer: (B)

Explanation: Rebate received by Barack = 6% of Rs 6650 = 6/100 × 6650 = 3/5 × 665 = Rs 399.
Sales Tax paid by Barack = 10% of Rs (6650-399) = 10% of Rs 6251 = Rs 625.10.
Therefore, Barack’s total expenditure = Rs (6251 + 625.10) = Rs 6876.10.
