If Marked Price = (MP), Selling Price = (SP),

Then, Discount = MP – SP and

Discount % = $\text"Discount"/\text"MP" × 100$

Discount % = $\text"Marked Price - Selling Price"/\text"Marked Price" × 100$

If article is sold on D% discount, then

SP = ${\text"MP"(100 - D)}/100$

MP = ${\text"SP" × 100}/{100 - D}$

When successive Discounts $D_1, D_2, D_3$, so on, are given then

SP = MP$({100 - D_1}/100)({100 - D_2}/100)({100 - D_3}/100)$

If $D_1, D_2, D_3$ are successive discounts, then equivalent discount/overall discount is (in percentage)

Overall Dicount = 100 - $[({100 - D_1}/100)({100 - D_2}/100)({100 - D_3}/100) × 100]$

If r% of profit or loss occur after giving D% discount on marked price, then

$\text"MP"/\text"CP" = {100 ± r}/{100 - D}$

(+ve sign for **profit** and -ve sign for **loss**)

The marked price of an article is fixed in such a way that after allowing a discount of r% a profit of R% is obtained. Then,

Marked price of the article = $({r + R}/{100 - r} × 100)$% more than its cost price.

**Question-1)**

**A trader sells his goods at a discount of 20%. He still makes a profit of 25%. If he sells the goods at the marked price only, his profit will be**

A) 34.25%

B) 45.40%

C) 56.25%

D) 65.35%

**Answer & Solution**

Ans-C

Here, D = 20% r = 25%

Let, M.P. be Rs.100

$\text"MP"/\text"CP" = {100 + r}/{100 - D}$

$100/\text"CP" = {100 + 25}/{100 - 20}$

C.P. = ${100 × 80}/125$

C.P. = Rs.64

Profit = 100 - 64 = 36

Gain % = $36/64 × 100%$ = 56.25%

**Question-2)**

**A shopkeeper earns a profit of 12% on selling a book at 10% discount on the printed price. The ratio of the cost price and the printed price of the book is**

A) 15 : 27

B) 25 : 42

C) 35 : 52

D) 45 : 56

**Answer & Solution**

Ans-D

Here, r = 12% D = 10%

$\text"MP"/\text"CP" = {100 + r}/{100 - D}$

$\text"MP"/\text"CP" = {100 + 12}/{100 - 10}$

$\text"MP"/\text"CP" = 112/90$

$\text"CP"/\text"MP" = 90/112$

$\text"CP"/\text"MP" = 45/56$

C.P. : M.P. = 45 : 56

**Question-3)**

**A shopkeeper offers 10% discount on the marked price of his articles and still makes a profit of 20%. What is the actual cost of the article marked Rs.500 for him ?**

A)Rs.375

B)Rs.450

C)Rs.470

D)Rs.350

**Answer & Solution**

Ans-A

Let the cost price of article be x

$500 × 90/100 = 120/100 × x$

450 = ${6x}/5$

$x = {450 × 5}/6$ = Rs.375

**Question-4)**

**A grinder was marked at Rs.3,600. After given a discount of 10% the dealer made a profit of 8%. Calculate the cost price.**

A)Rs.2,000

B)Rs.3,000

C)Rs.4,000

D)Rs.5,000

**Answer & Solution**

Ans-B

M.P. = Rs.3600, D = 10%,

r = 8%, C.P. = ?

$\text"MP"/\text"CP" = {100 + r}/{100 - D}$

$3600/\text"CP" = {100 + 8}/{100 - 10}$

C.P. = ${3600 × 90}/108$

= ${3600 × 10}/12$ = Rs.3000

**Question-5)**

**A shopkeeper earns a profit of 10% after allowing a discount of 20% on the marked price. The cost price of the article whose marked price is Rs.880, is**

A) Rs.560

B) Rs.640

C) Rs.720

D) Rs.800

**Answer & Solution**

Ans-B

Here, r = 10%, D = 20%, M.P. = Rs.880, C.P. = ?

$\text"MP"/\text"CP" = {100 + r}/{100 - D}$

$880/\text"C.P." = {100 + 10}/{100 - 20}$

C.P. = ${880 × 80}/110$

C.P. = Rs.640

**Question-6)**

**The cost of manufacturing an article was Rs.900. The trader wants to gain 25% after giving a discount of 10%. The marked price must be**

A) Rs.1050

B) Rs.1120

C) Rs.1150

D) Rs.1250

**Answer & Solution**

Ans-D

CP = Rs.900

S.P. = 125% of 900

= $({900 × 125}/100)$ = Rs.1125

Let the marked price be x

90% of x = Rs.1125

$x = {1125 × 100}/90$ = Rs.1250
