#### Question

The marked price of a mixer is 2300 rupees. A customer purchased it for Rs. 1955. Find percentage of discount offered to the customer.

#### Solution

Marked price of the mixer = ₹ 2,300

Selling price of the mixer = ₹ 1,955

∴ Discount = Marked price − Selling price = ₹ 2,300 − ₹ 1,955 = ₹ 345

On marked price of ₹ 2,300, the discount is ₹ 345.

Let the discount be ₹ x.

Now, if the marked price is ₹ 100, then the discount is ₹ x.

∴ $\frac{x}{100} = \frac{345}{2300}$

⇒ $x = \frac{345}{2300} \times 100$ = 15

Thus, the percentage of discount offered to the customer is 15%.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
