# What will be The Market Price ? If

Allowing 20% and 15% successive discounts, the selling price of an article becomes Rs.3,060 then the marked price will be

- Rs. 4000
- Rs. 4500
- Rs. 5000
- Rs. 4400

**Answer: (2) Rs.4500**

**Explanation:-**

Allowing 20% and 15 % successive discounts,

Then, the total discount = 20 + 15 – 20 x 15/100

= 35 – 15/5

= 35 – 3

= 32 %

The selling price of an article = Rs.3060

Then, marked price = 3060 x 100/(100 – 32)

= 3060 x 100/68

= 45 x 100

= Rs.4500

Then, the marked price will be Rs.4500.

Hence,the answer is (2) Rs.4500.
