A shopkeeper was selling all his items at 25% discount. During the off season, he offered 30% discount over and above the existing discount. If Pragya bought a skirt which was marked for Rs 1,200, how much did she pay for it?

Answer :

Given that, in normal days shopkeeper give 25% discount and during the off season, he offered 30% discount over and above the existing discount. And the marked price of skirt = Rs.1200.

For normal days:

= Rs.300

the skirt price will be = Rs.1200 - Rs.300

= Rs.900

And now for off season:

30% discount over and above the existing discount will be there

= Rs.270

skirt price now will be = Rs.900 - Rs.270

= Rs.630
