**Question:**

The marked price of a TV is Rs 18500. A dealer allows two successive discounts of 20% and 5%. For how much is the TV available?

**Solution:**

Marked price of the TV = Rs 18500

First discount $=20 \%$

Now, $20 \%$ of 18500

$=\frac{20}{100} \times 18500$

$=$ Rs 3700

Price after the first discount = Rs (18500 − 3700)= Rs 14800

Second discount = 5% of 14800

$=\frac{5}{100} \times 14800$

$=740$

Price after the second discount $=(14800-740)$

$=$ Rs 14060

The TV is available for Rs 14060 .
