The marked price of an article

Question:

The marked price of an article when it is sold for Rs. 880 after a discount of 12% is ______

Solution:

Rs.1000

Explanation: selling price = Rs.880

Discount percentage = 12%

Let x be the marked price.

Since, discount is calculated on marked price, thus;

x – x × (12/100) = 880

88x /100 = 880

x = 10 × 100 = 1000
