Answered

Meena bought a mobile set with 20 % discount on the labelled price. She made a profit of Rs. 800 by selling it for Rs. 800 by selling it for Rs. 16800. The labelled price of the mobile set was:

- Rs. 18000
- Rs. 19000
- Rs. 20000
- Rs. 24000

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.
