Formula related to this:
Selling price = Marked Price(printed price) - Discount
discount% = Actual discount
---------------------- x 100
M.P
20   =  (Actual discount/1250) X 100
so, actual discount = (20*1250)/100
= 250
so, selling price = 1250 - 250 = 1000,  profit % = 25
cp = ( 100/100+profit%)x sp
= 100/125 x 1000
= 800
If he sells 170 less than m.p
ie sp = 1250 - 170 = 1080
cp = 800
profit = 1080-800 = 280
so profit% = (profit/cp) x 100
= (280 / 800) x100
= 35%

if you satisfy with this answer pls. mark it has brainliest
thanks bro
