Best answer

Answer: (3) Rs. 20000

Explanation:-
Let the labelled price be Rs. X.
Meena bought 20 % on the labelled price.
Then, the selling price of the mobile  = X x 80/100
= Rs. 4 X / 5

Meena sells it for Rs. 16800  and   Profit = Rs.800
Then,  4 X / 5 + 800 = 16800
(4 X + 5 x 800) / 5 = 16800
4 X + 4000 = 16800 x 5
4 X = 84000 – 4000
4 X = 80000
X = 80000/4
X = 20000

Then, the lebelled price of the mobile set was Rs.20000.

Hence,the answer is (3) Rs. 20000.
