# What will be Price of the Article? If

The price of an article is raised by 30% and then two successive discounts of 10% each are allowed, Ultimately, the price of the article is:

- Decreased by 5.3%
- Increased by 3%
- Increases by 5.3%
- Increased by 10%

**Answer: (3) Increased price by 5.3 %**

**Explanation:-**

Let be the price of an article = Rs.100

The price of an article is raised by 30 %,

Then, the price of an article = 100 + 100 x 30/100

= 100 + 30

= Rs.130

Two successive discount of 10 % each = 10 + 10 – 10 x 10/100

= 20 – 1 = 19 %

Then, the discount of an article =130 x 19/100

= 24.7%

Then, The price of an article = 130 – 24.7

= 105.3

The increased price = 105.3 – 100

= 5.3 %

Hence, the answer is (3) increased by 5.3%.
