Answer :

(a) Given, Marked Price of a board game = Rs.320


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


Hence, method 2 will be beneficial for her.


(b) In Method 1 amount paid by sheela is Rs.202.5


And in Method 2 amount paid by sheela is Rs.190


(c) Method 1 will be used by stores because in this method actual discount is loss.
