  1. A cycle dealer offers a discount of 10 % and still makes a profit of 26 %. What does he pay for a cycle whose marked price is ₹ 840 ?
    1. ₹ 600
    2. ₹ 650
    3. ₹ 700
    4. ₹ 750
Correct Option: A

Let C.P. of cycle = Rs. p

∴  840 ×
90
=
p × 126
100100

⇒  p × 126 = 840 × 90
⇒  p =
840 × 90
= ₹ 600
126

2nd method to solve this question.
Here, r = 26%, D = 10%, M.P. = ₹ 840
M.P.
=
100 + r
C.P.100 − D

840
=
100 + 26
M.P.100 − 10

C.P. =
840 × 90
= Rs. 600
126
