## Calculating Discount Percentage Worksheets

I. A fridge is marked for Rs. 25500 and is sold for Rs. 22000.
(i) Find the discount given.
(ii) Find the discount given as a percent.

Solution:

Given,
Marked Price of the fridge=Rs. 25500
Selling Price of the fridge=Rs. 22000
We know that discount given=marked price – selling price
=Rs. 25500 – 22000
=Rs. 3500
Discount%=Discount/Marked price × 100
=3500/25500 × 100
=13.72%
Hence, the discount is Rs. 3500 and the discount percent is 13.72%.

II. A shopkeeper marked the bicycle for Rs. 10000. He sold it for Rs.9000. What percent discount did he give?

Solution:

Given,
Marked Price of the bicycle=Rs. 10000
Bicycle is sold for=Rs. 9000
We know that discount=marked Price – Selling Price
=Rs. 10000 – Rs. 9000
=Rs. 1000
Discount Percent=Discount/Marked Price × 100
=1000/10000 × 100
=10
Therefore, the shopkeeper gave a 10% discount.

III. The list price of an article is Rs. 950 and it is sold for Rs. 850.
(i) Find the discount given.
(ii) Find the discount given as a percent.

Solution:

Given,
The list price of an article is =Rs. 950
The Selling Price of an article is=Rs. 850
As we know discount=marked Price – Selling PriceDiscount
=Rs. 950 – Rs. 850
=Rs. 100
Discount Percent=Discount/List Price × 100
=100/950 × 100
=10.52%
Therefore, the discount percent is 10.52%.

IV. In a shop, a shirt is marked at Rs. 3250 and is available for Rs. 2850. Find the discount given by the shopkeeper and express it as a percent?

Solution:

Given,
Marked Price of the Shirt=Rs. 3250
The Shirt is available for=Rs. 2850
Discount=Marked Price – Selling Price
=Rs. 3250 – Rs. 2850
=Rs. 400
Discount Percent=Discount/Marked Price × 100
=400/3250 × 100
=12.30
Therefore, the discount given by the shopkeeper is 12.30%.

V. A wholesaler allows a discount of 30% on the list price to a retailer who sells it at a 10% discount on the list price. If a customer paid Rs.. 150 for an article, what profit is made by the retailer? Find, also the retailer’s percentage profit on his cost?

Solution:

Lets wholesaler list prices are= Rs.100
Then wholesaler gives a 30% discount to the retailer.
Then selling price to retailer =100−30=Rs.70
The retailer sells 10% to customer discount on list price =Rs.10
Then, retailer selling price =100−10=Rs. 90
As per the question, the customer paid Rs.114 to the retailer
Then list price =100×150/95
=157
Then C.P of retailer =70×157/100
​=109
Profit gain by retailer =150−109=Rs. 41
% of profit =41×100/109
​=37.61%
Therefore, the retailer’s profit percentage is 37.61%.

VI. The marked price of an LED TV is Rs.. 48400. A shopkeeper allows three successive discounts of 20%, 10%, and 5% or 10% and a free mobile phone. Find the cost of mobile phone being offered?

Solution:

Given,
The marked price of an LED TV is =Rs.. 48400
After 20% discount 80/100 × 48,400=Rs. 38,720
After 10% discount 90/100 × 38,720=Rs. 34,848
After 5% discount 95/100 × 34,848=Rs. 33,105
Net Selling Price of LED TV is=Rs. 33,105
10% discount on this price is the cost of a mobile phone.
90/100 × 48400=Rs. 43560
Cost of mobile phone=43560−33105=Rs. 10455
Therefore, the price of the mobile phone is Rs. 10455.

VII. A bicycle marked at Rs. 5000 is sold for Rs. 3500. What is the percentage of discount?

Solution:

Given,
The marked price is Rs. 5000
The selling Price is Rs.3500
Amount of discount = Marked Price – Selling Price
Amount of discount = 5000 – 3500
Amount of discount = Rs. 1500
The discount for Rs. 5000 is Rs.1500.
Percent of discount = (1500/5000) ⋅ 100
Percent of discount = (15/50) ⋅ 100
Percent of discount = 30%
So, the percentage of the discount is 30%.

VIII. Geetha purchased a mini-fridge for Rs. 20000. The shopKeeper offered a discount of 20% on its listed price and still gains 10%. Find the listed price of the mini-fridge?

Solution:

Cost price of the mini-fridge = Rs.20000, Profit% = 10%.
Thus, selling price = {100 + profit %} /100 × CP
= Rs. 100+10)/100×20000
= Rs. (110/100)×20000
= Rs. 22000.
Now, Let the listed price be Rs. x.
Then, the discount = 20% of Rs.. x
= Rs. {x × (20/100)}
= Rs. 1x/5
Therefore, SP = (Listed Price) – (discount)
= Rs. (x – 1x/5)
= Rs. 4x/5.
But, the SP = Rs. 22000
Therefore, 4x/5 = 22000
x = (22000 × 5/4)
x = 27500
Hence, the marked price of the mini-fridge is Rs. 27500.

IX. In a store, a sweatshirt is marked for Rs.1800 is available for Rs. 1620. Find out the discount and discount Percent?

Solution:

Given that
Marked Price=Rs. 1800
Selling Price=Rs. 1620
To calculate the discount, we know the formula discount=marked Price – Selling Price
Discount=Rs. 1800 – Rs. 1620
= 180
Discount Percent=Discount/Marked Price × 100
=180/1800 × 100
=10
Therefore, the discount is Rs. 180 and the discount percent is 10%.

X. In a store, an Rs.. 4000 dress is marked with Save 25 %. What will be the discount? What will be the sale price of this dress?

Solution:

Given,
The phrase, Save 25%, means discount rate.
The original price of the dress is given as Rs.. 4000.
The discount amount will be 25/100×Rs..4000=Rs..1000
We know that sales price=original Price – discount
Sale price = 4000 – 1000 = Rs.. 3000
Therefore, the discount is Rs.. 1000 and the sale price of the dress is  Rs.. 3000.
