# What will be the Profit? If

If the cost price of an item is two fifth of its marked price and if is sold at a discount of 10%, then there will be

- 25% profit
- 40% profit
- 50% profit
- 125% profit

**Answer: (4) 125%**

**Explanation:-**

Let be the market price = Rs.100

Then, the cost price = 100 x 2/5 = Rs.40

He gives 10% discount at the market price.

Then, selling price = 100 – 100 x 10/100

= 100 – 10 = Rs.90

Profit = 90 – 40 = Rs.50

% of profit = 50 x 100/40 = 125%

Hence, the answer is (4) 125%.
