Question 118

The shopkeeper added 42% of the cost price as mark up and then he gives a discount of same 42% on the marked price for a sale, then what will be the overall profit or loss percentage?

Solution

Let cost price = Rs. 100

=> Marked price = $$100\times(\frac{142}{100})=Rs.$$ $$142$$

Thus, selling price after discount of 42% = $$142\times\frac{100-42}{100}=Rs.$$ $$82.36$$

$$\therefore$$ Loss % = $$\frac{100-82.36}{100}\times100=17.64\%$$

=> Ans - (A)
