  1. A discount of 14% on the marked price of an article is allowed and then the article is sold for ₹ 387. The marked price of the article is
    1. ₹ 450
    2. ₹ 427
    3. ₹ 500
    4. ₹ 440
Correct Option: A

Here , SP of article = ₹ 387 , discount = 14%
Let the marked price be y
∴  ( 100 - 14 )% of y = 387
⇒ 86% of y = 387

∴  y =
387 × 100
= ₹ 450
86

We can find required answer with the help of given formula :
Here, D = 14%, S.P. = 387, M.P. = ?
M.P. =
S.P. × 100
100 − D

=
387 × 100
100 − 14

=
38700
= ₹ 450
86
