      Vaibhav went to purchase a tablet, the shopkeeper told him to pay 22% tax if he asked the bill. Vaibhav manages to get the discount of 8% on the actual saleprice of the tablet and he paid the shopkeeper Rs. 7360 without tax. Besides he manages to avoid to pay 22% tax on the already discounted price, what is the amount of discount that he would have got?

      A Rs. 2440 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      B Rs. 2400 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      C Rs. 1600 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      D Rs. 1960 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      E None of these Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

      Solution

      Let CP = Rs.100, SP (with tax) = Rs.122 New SP = 100 – 8 = Rs. 92 Effective discount = 122– 92= Rs. 30 So, at SP of 92 ≡ discount = 25 At SP of 7360 ≡ discount =7360 × 30/92=Rs.2400
