# The price of a watch including 8% VAT is Rs. 810. What is its basic price?

**Given:**

The price of a watch including 8% VAT is Rs. 810.

**To do:**

We have to find its basic price.

**Solution:**

Let the basic price of the watch be $x$.

This implies,

$810=x+\frac{8}{100}x$

$810=x(\frac{108}{100}$

$x=\frac{810\times25}{27}$

$x=30\times25$

$x=750$

**The basic price of the watch is Rs. 750.**
