    Single equivalent discount for two successive discounts of 7% each.

    = 7 + 7 −
    7 × 7
    % = (14 – 0.49)% = 13.51%
    100

    Marked price of article = Rs. 20000
    ∴  Required S.P.
    = (100 – 13.51)% of Rs. 20000
    = Rs.
    20000 × 86.94
    = Rs. 17298

    After a discount of 20%,

    Price of fan = Rs.
    150 × 80
    = Rs. 120
    100

    Again, discount

    ∴  x% of 120 = 12
    ⇒  x ×
    120
    = 12
    100

    ⇒  x =
    1200
    = 10%
    120
