QuesRaju purchase a box and wants to mark it to get 15% profit after offering 10% discount for this what percent greater than the cost price he must mark it?

a)  27(7/9)%

b)  44(8/5)%

c)   25(7/9)%

d)  32(4/5)%

Solution

10% discount on Marked Price = 15% discount on Cost price

90/100 M.P = 115/100 C.P

90 M.P = 115 C.P
M.P = 115/90 C.P
M.P = 23/18 C.P

Percent greater than C.P = 5/18 *100
                         = 500/18
                         = 27(7/9)%
Ans = 27(7/9)%
