Sum

A ready-made garments shop in Delhi, allows a 20 percent discount on its garments and still makes a profit of 20 percent. Find the marked price of a dress which is bought by the shop-keeper for Rs.400.

#### Solution

C.P. of the dress = Rs.400

Profit =20/100xx"Rs."400  = Rs.80

S.P. = C.P. + Profit

= Rs.400 + Rs.80

= Rs.480

Let, M.P. of the dress = Rs.100

Discount @ 20% =20/100xx"Rs."100 = Rs.20

S.P. of the dress = M.P. − Discount

= Rs.100 − Rs.20

= Rs.80

If S.P. of the dress is ₹80; then M.P. = ₹100

If S.P. of the dress is ₹1 then M.P. = ₹100/80

If S.P. of the dress is ₹480 then M.P.

= ₹100/80xx480

= ₹100 × 6 = 600

∴ M.P. of the dress = ₹600
