### Solved Questions on Discount

1. Find the discount received by John on a table using the discount formula, if the selling price of the table is \$10 and the marked price is \$27.

a) \$7
b) \$11
c) \$17
d) \$21

Explanation: The Marked price = \$27

The selling price = \$10

By using the discount formula, Discount = Marked Price - Selling Price

Discount = 27-10 = 17

Therefore, the discount received = \$17

2. A necklace is marked at \$940. If it is sold for \$799, then find the discount percent.

a) 15%
b) 20%
c) 25%
d) 30%

Explanation: Marked price = \$940
Selling price = \$799
Discount = Marked price – Selling price
= \$940 - \$799
= \$141

We know that,
Discount % = (Discount / Marked price) x 100
= (141/940) x 100
= 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

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

4. A product with a marked price of \$100 is offered at a 10% discount. What is the sale price?

a) \$50
b) \$59
c) \$78
d) \$90

Explanation: Selling Price = Marked Price ([100−discount%]/100)
= 100([100 – 10%]/100)
= \$90

5. A store is offering a 25% discount on all items. If a customer wants to buy a jacket that is priced at \$145, how much will they have to pay after the discount?

a) \$180.45
b) \$108.75
c) \$70.23
d) \$65.6

Explanation: Discount % = 25%
Marked price = \$145
Selling Price = Marked Price ([100 - discount%]/100)
= 145([100 - 25%]/100)
= \$108.75
