#### Solution

C.P. of the article = Rs.450

(i) The marked price of the article

=(100+20)/100xx"Rs."450

= Rs.120/100xx450 = 12 × 45 = Rs.540

∴ Marked price of the article = Rs.540

(ii) Discount =10/100xx"M.P."

=10/100xx"Rs."540

= Rs.54

S.P. = M.P. − Discount

= Rs.540 − Rs.54

= Rs.486

(iii) S.P. = Rs.496.80

M.P. = Rs.540

Discount = M.P. − S.P.

= Rs.540 − Rs.496.80

= Rs.43.20

Discount% ="Discount"/"M.P."xx100

=43.20/540xx100

=4320/540%

= 8%
