1. ₹ 70
2. ₹ 71.25
3. ₹ 72
4. ₹ 72.25

1. An article marked ₹ 800 is offered at ₹ 736 in the off season. The rate of discount offered is :
1. 10%
2. 7%
3. 7.5%
4. 8%

1. Discount = 800 – 736 = ₹ 64

 ∴  Discount percent = 64 ×100 = 8% 800

##### Correct Option: D

Discount = 800 – 736 = ₹ 64

 ∴  Discount percent = 64 ×100 = 8% 800

1. A washing machine is sold at a discount of 30%. If a man buys it for ₹ 6,580, its list price is
1. ₹ 7,500
2. ₹ 8,600
3. ₹ 9,400
4. ₹ 6,990

1.  Marked price = 6580 × 100 = ₹ 9400 70

Second method :
D = 30%, S.P. = 6580, M.P. = ?
 M.P. = S.P. × 100 100 − D

 = 6580 × 100 100 − 30

 = 658000 = ₹ 9400 70

##### Correct Option: C

 Marked price = 6580 × 100 = ₹ 9400 70

Second method :
D = 30%, S.P. = 6580, M.P. = ?
 M.P. = S.P. × 100 100 − D

 = 6580 × 100 100 − 30

 = 658000 = ₹ 9400 70

1. If a dining table with marked price ₹ 6,000 was sold to a customer for 5,500, then the rate of discount allowed on the table is
1. 10%
2. 8%
3.  8 1 % 3
4. 9%

1. Discount = 6000 – 5500 = ₹ 500
If discount = x%, then

 6000 × x = 500 100

 ⇒ x = 500 = 25 = 8 1 % 60 3 3

Second method :
M.P. = ₹ 6000
S.P. = ₹ 5500
 Discount % = M.P. − S.P. × 100 M.P.

 = 6000 − 5500 × 100 6000

 = 500 − 100 6000

 8 1 % 3

##### Correct Option: C

Discount = 6000 – 5500 = ₹ 500
If discount = x%, then

 6000 × x = 500 100

 ⇒ x = 500 = 25 = 8 1 % 60 3 3

Second method :
M.P. = ₹ 6000
S.P. = ₹ 5500
 Discount % = M.P. − S.P. × 100 M.P.

 = 6000 − 5500 × 100 6000

 = 500 − 100 6000

1. A fan is listed at ₹ 150 and a discount of 20% is given. Then the selling price is
1. ₹ 180
2. ₹ 150
3. ₹ 120
4. ₹ 110

1. Given that , Marked price of fan = ₹ 150 , discount = 20%

 S.P. of the fan = 150 × 80 = ₹ 120 100

We can find the required answer with the help of given formula :
M.P. = ₹ 150, D = 20%, S.P. = ?
 M.P. = S.P. × 100 100 − D

##### Correct Option: C

Given that , Marked price of fan = ₹ 150 , discount = 20%

 S.P. of the fan = 150 × 80 = ₹ 120 100

We can find the required answer with the help of given formula :
M.P. = ₹ 150, D = 20%, S.P. = ?
 M.P. = S.P. × 100 100 − D

 150 = S.P. × 100 100 − 20

 S.P. = 150 × 80 100

∴ S.P. = ₹ 120
