Question 8

# After giving two successive discounts of 20% and 25% a cycle is sold for Rs 4200. What is the marked price (in Rs) of the cycle?

Solution

Let marked price = Rs. $$100x$$

Selling price after first discount of 20% = $$100x-(\frac{20}{100}\times100x)$$

= $$100x-20x=Rs.$$ $$80x$$

Similarly, selling price after second discount of 25% = $$80x-(\frac{25}{100}\times80x)$$

= $$80x-20x=Rs.$$ $$60x$$

According to ques, => $$60x=4200$$

=> $$x=\frac{4200}{60}=70$$

$$\therefore$$ Marked price = $$100\times70=Rs.$$ $$7,000$$

=> Ans - (B)
