Solution

Steps: 2 Mark
Price before discount: 1 Mark
Selling price: 1 Mark

Given that,
Radhika bought a new mobile phone and saved  1000 when a discount of 10% was given.
We can infer from the above statement that 10% of the original price =   1000

10% of the original price =   1000

Let the price be P.

10% of P = 1000

10100×P = 1000

P=1000×10010

P =   10000
Hence the original price of the mobile phone is   10000.

Now, the original price of the mobile phone is   10000.
Discount given =   1000
The Selling price or the price at which the phone was sold = Original Price - Discount
On substituting the values we get:
Selling Price = 10000 - 1000 =   9000

Hence, the mobile phone was sold at   9000.
