#### Question

A shopkeeper gives 11% discount on a television set, hence the cost price of it is Rs. 22,250. Then find the marked price of the television set.

#### Solution

Let the marked price of the television set be Rs x.

Discount percent on the television set = 11%

If the marked price of the television set was Rs 100, then the customer would have paid (Rs 100 − Rs 11) Rs 89 for the television set.

It is given that cost price of the television set to the customer is Rs 22,250.

∴ \[\frac{89}{100} = \frac{22250}{x}\]

⇒ \[x = 22250 \times \frac{100}{89}\] = Rs 25,000

Thus, the marked price of the television set is Rs 25,000.
