An almirah is sold at Rs 5225 after allowing a discount of 5% .find its marked price.

Let,the marked price of the almirah = Rs. x

Assume, x as a variable to do the further mathematical calculations.

So, the discount amount = x × 5/100 = Rs. x/20

The selling price = x – x/20 = Rs. 19x/20

Now,if we compare the value of selling price that is given in the question and the value of the selling price that we have calculated,then we will get the following mathematical equation,

19x/20 = 5225

x = 5225 × 20/19 = 5500

Hence, the marked price of almirah is 5500.
