Solution

Let the marked price be  ₹ 100

After 1st discount the price = `100(1 - 5/100) = 95`

After the 2nd discount the price = `95(1 - 7/100)`

= `(95 xx 93)/100`

After 3rd discount the price = `(95 xx 93)/100(1 - 9/100)`

= `(95 xx 93 xx 91)/(100 xx 100)`

= `803985/10000`

= 80.3985

≈ 80.4

The selling price after 3 discounts is ₹ 80.4

∴ Single equivalent discount

= Marked price – Selling price

= 100 – 80.4

= ₹ 19.6

∴ Single equivalent discount is 19.6%
