An Item Marked At Rs. 840 Is Sold For Rs. 714. What Are The Discount And Discount%?

Given:

Marked price (M.P)= Rs. 840

Selling price (S.P)= Rs. 714.

Now by substituting the values, we get:

Discount = Marked price – Sale price

\( \Rightarrow Rs. 840 – Rs. 714\) \( \Rightarrow Rs.126\) \( Discount% = \frac{Discount}{Marked price}*100\) \( \Rightarrow \frac{126}{840}*100\) \( \Rightarrow 0.15 * 100\) \( \Rightarrow 15%\)

Therefore, the discount is Rs.126 and the discount percentage is 15%
