If a shopkeeper gives 10% discount on the MRP of a toy, his gain is 20%. If he had given a discount of 20%, his percentage of gain woulld be?

solution:
Let  Cost Price = 100
let MRP = Y
therefore according to question ,
If Discount is 10% on MRP , then
Selling Price =Y - 10/100*Y
= 100Y - 10Y/100
= 90/100*Y
= 0.9 Y
Gain = SP - CP
10 = 0.9 Y - 100 ...........(1)
100= 0.9Y - 10
100+10 = 0.9Y
110 = 0.9Y
Y = 110/0.9
Y=122.22
If Discount = 20% on MRP , then
SP = Y - 20/100*Y
= Y - 0.2 Y
= 0.8 Y
= 0.8*122.22
= 97.77
By giving the discount of 20% , the seller will incur a loss given by

= 100 - 97.77
=  2.22

Hence Loss = 2.22%

Hope this helps YOU!!
