Out of the four options, only one is correct. Write the correct answer.

To gain 25% after allowing a discount of 10%, the shopkeeper must mark the price of the article which costs him Rs 360 as
A. Rs 500

B. Rs 450

C. Rs 460

D. Rs 486

Answer :

Let the marked price of the article be ₹x.


Cost price of the article = ₹360


According to the question,


= 360


= 360


Because discount is always calculated on marked price and profit is always calculated on cost price.


= 360



9x = 450 × 10



x = ₹500


So, the marked price is ₹500.


Hence, option (a) is correct.
