    Here , First discount = 25% , Second discount = ( 50 / 3 )% ,

    Difference of discounts = 25 −
    50
    % =

    Let the marked price be y, then
    According to question ,
    y × 25
    = 600

    Given that , discount = 6% , SP of fan = ₹ 846

    Marked price =
    SP of fan × 100
    100 - Discount

    Marked price =
    846 × 100
    100 - 6

    Correct Option: A

    Given that , discount = 6% , SP of fan = ₹ 846

    Marked price =
    SP of fan × 100
    100 - Discount

    Marked price =
    846 × 100
    100 - 6

    Marked price =
    846 × 100

    3. ₹ 1,000
    4. ₹ 2,100

    Here , discount = 12% , SP of an article = ₹ 880

    ∴ Marked price =
    100
    × SP of an article
    100 − Discount

    Marked price =
    100
    ×880 = ₹ 1000
    100 − 12

    We can find the required answer with the help of given formula :
    Here, S.P. = ₹ 880, D = 12%, M.P. = ?
    M.P. =
    S.P. × 100
    100 − D

    Correct Option: C

    Here , discount = 12% , SP of an article = ₹ 880

    ∴ Marked price =
    100
    × SP of an article
    100 − Discount

    Marked price =
    100
    ×880 = ₹ 1000
    100 − 12

    We can find the required answer with the help of given formula :
    Here, S.P. = ₹ 880, D = 12%, M.P. = ?
    M.P. =
    S.P. × 100
    100 − D

    M.P. =
    880 × 100
    100 − 12

    M.P. =
    880 × 100
    = ₹ 1000
