# What was the Market Price? If

A trader allow two successive discount of 20% and 10% on an article. If a customer buys the article for Rs.108, what was its marked price?

- Rs.160
- Rs.144
- Rs.148
- Rs.150

**Answer: (d) Rs.150
Explanation:-
**Let the market price be X

20% discount then, price = 80 x X/100

and again discount 10% = (80 x X/100) x 90 /100

(80 x X/100) x 90/100 = 108

X = 150

Hence, the market price = Rs.150
