#### Question

During a sale, a shop offered a discount of 10% on the marked prices of all the items. What would a customer have to pay for a pair of jeans marked at Rs 1450 and two shirts marked at Rs 850 each?

#### Solution

Total marked price = Rs (1,450 + 2 × 850) = Rs (1,450 +1,700) = Rs 3,150

Given that, discount % = 10%

Discount = Rs (10/100 xx 3150) = Rs 315

Also, Discount = Marked price − Sale price

Rs 315 = Rs 3150 − Sale price

∴ Sale price = Rs (3150 − 315) = Rs 2835

Thus, the customer will have to pay Rs 2,835.
