Instructions

Two quantities A and B are given in each of the following questions.

Question 97

Arun and Rakesh bought the same brand of car. Arun got 10% discount from the dealer after which 7% sales tax was added. For Rakesh 7% tax was added and only then a 10% discount was given.

A. The amount Arun paid for the car
B. The amount Rakesh paid for the car

Solution

Let the price of the car which Arun and Rakesh bought be 'x'

A) Arun got 10% discount from the dealer after which 7% sales tax was added,

Effective price of the car = 90 % of 93% of x

B) For Rakesh 7% tax was added and only then a 10% discount was given,

Effective price of the car = 93% of 90% of x

Both the quantities are equal.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.
