Question

Kabir buys an article with $$25\%$$ discount on its marked price. He makes a profit of $$10\%$$ by selling it at Rs. $$660$$. The marked price is ___________.


A
Rs. 600
loader
B
Rs. 700
loader
C
Rs. 800
loader
D
Rs. 685
loader

Solution

The correct option is B Rs. $$800$$
let the marked price is Rs. $$x$$
the price for which he bought $$=(1-.25)\times x=0.75x$$
he sells it at $$660$$ and makes a profit of $$10\%$$

$$\dfrac{660-0.75x}{0.75x}=0.1$$
$$660-0.75x = 0.075x$$
$$660=0.825x$$
$$x=800$$
