#### Discount

1. A sells a scooter priced ₹ 36,000. He gives a discount of 8% on the first ₹ 20,000 and 5% on the next ₹ 10,000. How much discount can he offered on the remaining ₹ 6,000 if he is to get as much as when 7% discount is allowed on the total ?
1. 5%
2. 6%
3. 7%
4. 8%
##### Correct Option: C

As per the given in question ,
SP of scooter = ₹ 36,000 , discount = 7%

 Discount on ₹ 36000 = 36000 × 7 = ₹ 2520 100

 Discount on first ₹ 20,000 = 20,000 × 8 = ₹ 1600 100

 Discount on next ₹ 10,000 = 10,000 × 5 = ₹ 500 100

∴  Discount on remaining ₹ 6,000 = 2520 – (1600 + 500) = ₹ 420
 ∴  Required percent = 420 × 100 = 7% 6000
