Question 1.
A shopkeeper purchases an article for ₹ 6,200 and sells it to a customer for ₹ 8,500. If the sale tax (under VAT) is 8%; find the VAT paid by the shopkeeper.
Solution:
C.P. of article = ₹ 6200
Rate of VAT = 8%

Amount of VAT paid by the shopkeeper = ₹ 680 – ₹ 496 = ₹ 184

Question 2.
A purchases an article for ₹ 3,600 and sells it to B for ₹ 4,800. B, in turn, sells the article to C for ₹ 5,500. If the sale tax (under VAT) is 10%, find the VAT levied on A and B.
Solution:
C.P. of an article for A = ₹ 3600
C.P. of the article for B = ₹ 4800
and C.P. for C = ₹ 5500
Rate of VAT in each case = 10%

Now VAT levied on A = ₹ 480 – ₹ 360 = ₹ 120
and VAT levied on B = ₹ 550 – ₹ 480 = ₹ 70
