# After allowing a discount of 15% on the marked price of an article, it is sold for Rs 680. The marked price of the article is Rs 800. Is the following statement true or false

**Solution:**

The discount is always calculated on the Marked Price. The marked price in the given problem statement is Rs. 800.

The discount is calculated @15% as shown below:

15% × 800

= (15/100) × 800

= 15 × 8

= 120

Since the Marked price is Rs. 800 the discounted price will be :

Rs. 800 - Rs. 120 = Rs. 680

Therefore the discounted price is Rs. 680 when a discount of 15% is given on a marked price of Rs. 800.

**✦ ****Try this:** After allowing a discount of 10% on the marked price of an article, it is sold for Rs 720. The marked price of the article is Rs 800.

The discount is calculated @10% as shown below:

10% × 800

= (10/100) × 800

= 10 × 8

= 80

Since the Marked price is Rs. 800 the discounted price will be :

Rs. 800 - Rs. 80 = Rs. 720

Therefore the discounted price is Rs. 720 when a discount of 10% is given on a marked price of Rs. 800.
