### Question

What should be the marked price of an item if a profit of 70% is to be made after allowing a discount of 15%?

**A**

Rs. 200.

**B**

Rs. 210.

**C**

Rs. 190.

**D**

Rs. 220.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

If the cost is 100, the sale price would be 100 + 70 = Rs. 170. If M is the marked price, then sale price is (100 - 15)% of M = 170. Which gives 85M/100 = 170, which gives M = Rs. 200
