# Successive discount of 10%, 20% and 25% on the price of an article will reduce the price by :

**Answer: (3) 46% **

**Explanation:-**

The successive discount of 10% & 20% = 10 + 20 – 10 x 20/100

= 30 – 2

= 28%

Then, the successive discount 28% & 28% = 28 + 25 – 28 x 25/100

= 53 – 28/4

= 53 – 7

= 46%

Then, the successive discount of 10%, 20% and 28% is 46%.

Hence, the correct answer is (3) 46%.
