# During a sale, a shop offered a discount of 10% on the marked prices of all the items. What would a customer have to pay for a pair of jeans marked at Rs 1450 and two shirts marked at Rs 850 each?

Answer :

Total Price of a pair of jeans and two shirts = 1450 + 2 × 850

= Rs 3150

And Discount = Marked Price × % Discount

Effective Price After Discount = 3150 - 315 = Rs 2835

∴ A customer have to pay Rs 2835 for a pair of jeans marked at Rs 1450 and two shirts marked at Rs 850 each

So 10% of Marked price is reduced from the total marked price

Thus Price after discount = 3150 - 315 = Rs. 2835

This will be the selling price of Total things bought and also the answer
