# While purchasing one item costing Rs. 400, I had to pay the sales tax at 7% and on another costing Rs. 6400, the sales tax was 9%. What percent of the sales tax I had to pay, taking the two items together on an average ?

 A) 8 + 15/17 B) 2 + 13/17 C) 3 + 2/17 D) 5 + 13/12

Explanation:

Total sales tax paid = 7% of Rs, 400 + 9% of Rs. 6400

=Rs. (7/100)*400 + (9/100)*6400 = Rs. (28 + 576) = Rs. 604.

Total cost of the items = Rs. (400 + 6400) = Rs. 6800.

Required percentage =(604/6800*100) % = $81517$%.
