1. Let the marked price be Rs. x

Redate (discount)= 10% on the marked

After the discount selling price = Marked price – 10% of M.P

After the discount selling price Â = x – 10/100x = 90/100x

âˆ´ After the discount selling price = 90/100xÂ  Â  ……. (1)

18% GST is applicable on the selling price After the discount.

âˆ´ Final Purchase price = After the discount selling price + 18% of the discount selling price.

âˆ´ Final purchase price = 90/100xÂ  + (18/100)Ã—90/100x

âˆ´ Final Purchase price = 90/100xÂ  +1620/10000x

âˆ´ Final Purchase price = 1.062 x

But, the Final purchase price is Rs. 5310

âˆ´ 5310 = 1.062 x

âˆ´ x = 5310 Ã· 1.062

âˆ´ x = 5000

âˆ´ Marked Price of the article is Rs. 5000
