  1. A trader marked the price of his commodity so as to include a profit of 25%. He allowed discount of 16% on the marked price. His actual profit was :
    1. 5%
    2. 9%
    3. 16%
    4. 25%
Correct Option: A

Here , profit = 25%
Let the C.P. be ₹ 100
∴  Marked price = ₹ 125
S.P. = ( 100 - 16 )% of 125

S.P. = 84% of 125 =
84 × 125
= ₹ 105
100

∴  Profit = ₹ (105 – 100) = ₹ 5
∴ Profit percent =
5
× 100 = 5%
100
