Question of The Day13-07-2020

A shopkeeper intends to sell a product Marked at ₹ 1250 at 25% gain after allowing a discount of 20%. What would be the gain% on the product if he doesn’t allow any discount?


Correct Answer : c ) \(56.25\)%

Explanation :

We know that,

\({MP \over CP} \)=\( {100 \pm {Profit / loss} \space \% \over {100-Discount} \space \% }\)

\({1250 \over CP}={1258 \over 80}\)

CP = ₹ 800

Now, if no discount has been given then the marked price will be the selling price for the product

Selling Price = Marked price = ₹ 1250

We know,

\(Gain \%={Selling \space price-Cost \space price \over Cost \space price}*100\)

\({1250-800 \over 800}*100=56.25\)%

Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
