Question 64

A shopkeeper sold a TV set for Rs. 17,940, with a discount of 8% and gained 19.6%. If no discount is allowed, then whatwill be his gain per cent?

Solution

Selling price = Rs. 17,940

Marked price after discount of 8% = $$\frac{17940}{92}\times100=Rs.$$ $$19,500$$

Also, cost price = $$\frac{17940}{119.6}\times100=Rs.$$ $$15,000$$

If no discount is allowed, => selling price = Rs. 19,500

$$\therefore$$ Profit % = $$\frac{19500-15000}{15000}\times100$$

= $$\frac{4500}{150}=30\%$$

=> Ans - (D)
