a) $7

b) $11

c) $17

d) $21

**Answer:** c) $17

a) 15%

b) 20%

c) 25%

d) 30%

**Answer:** a) 15%

**Explanation:** Marked price = $940

Selling price = $799

Discount = Marked price – Selling price

= 15%

**3. A bungalow is marked at $3,00,000. The dealer allows successive discounts of 6%, 4% and 2 1/2 % on it. What is the net selling price of it?**

a) $300000

b) $286748

c) $263952

d) $218942

**Answer:** c) $263952

**Explanation:** Marked price of the bungalow = $3,00,000

Selling Price = Marked Price ([100−discount%]/100)

Net selling price after the successive discounts = 3,00,000 x ((100-6))/100 x ((100-4))/100 x ((100-2.5))/100

= 3,00,000 x 94/100 x 96/100 x 97.5/100

= (3 x 94 x 96 x 97.5)/10

= $2,63,952

= $108.75
