  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
