Also, discount in store = 25%

Sheela have a gift voucher value = Rs.50

In __Method 1:__

We need to subtract Rs 50 from the price and take

25% off the resulting price

⇒Rs.320 – Rs.50 = Rs. 270

⇒ Now, 25% discount on Rs270 =

= 270-67.5

= 202.5

In __Method2:__

We need to take 25% off the original price and then subtract Rs 50.

⇒ 25% off on Rs.320 =

⇒ Now, we know x% of n =

= 320-80

= 240

⇒ Subtracting 50 we get

= 240-50

= Rs.190
