  1. A shopkeeper gains 17% after allowing a discount of 10% on the marked price of an article. Find his profit percent if the articles are sold at marked price allowing no discount.
    1. 30%
    2. 23%
    3. 27%
    4. 37%
Correct Option: A

Let C.P of article = Rs. 100
M.P. of article = Rs. k
According to the question,

k × 90
= 117
100

⇒  k =
117 × 100
= Rs. 130
90

marked price = k = Rs. 130
∴  On allowing no discount profit = 30%
