# What will be his gain percentage? If

A shopkeeper marks his goods 30 % above the cost price and offers a discount of 10%. What is his gain percentage?

- 13%
- 15%
- 19%
- 17%

**Answer: (d) 17%
Explanation:-**

Let be the purchase price = Rs.100

market price = 100 + 100 x 30/100 = 100 + 30 = Rs.130

selling price = 90% of 130 = 130 x 90/100 = 117

Profit = 117 – 100 = 17

Profit% = 17 x 100/100 = 17%
