1. ### Correct question :-

After allowing a discount of 12% on the marked price if an article, it is sold for Rs. 220. Find its marked price.

### Explanation :-

Given :

Discount = 12%

Selling Price = Rs 220

To Find :

Marked price = ?

Solution :

We can find marked price by two method.

### First method (by using formula),    ### Second method (by assuming marked price as “x”)

Let the marked price be “x”

After allowing a discount of 12% on the marked price of an article:   We know SP = MP – Discount      Therefore,marked price is equal to Rs.250

2. Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

1. discount=12%
2. S.P after giving discount=220.

To find: Marked price=?

Let x be marked price.

12% of x = 12x/100.

Marked price – discount=Selling Price.

=> x-12x/100=220

=> 100x-12x/100=220

=> 88x/100=220.

=> x=22000/88

=> x= 250.

The Marked Price is 250.Rs
