The marked price of an object is R551220. The shopkeeper allows a discount of 10% and

gains 8%. If no discount
is allowed his gain percent would be ,
A>10% B>20% C>15%



Marked price = Rs.55120. after giving discount the price becomes Rs.55120(1-10/100)=Rs.55120*9/10=Rs.5512*9=Rs.49608. by selling the product at Rs.49608 he obtains a profit of 8%. therefore cost price (CP)*(1+8/100) = Rs.49608 ⇒ C.P = Rs.49608 * 100/108 = Rs.45933.33. therefore gain % without giving discount = (55120-45933.33)/45933.33*100=11.28%%
