The list price of an electric fan is Rs.300. If two successive discounts of 15% and 10% are allowed, its selling price would be

- Rs.225
- Rs.230
- Rs.229.50
- Rs.227.50

**Answer is Rs.229.50**

**Explanation:-**

The list price of an electric fan = Rs. 300

The single discount of two successive discounts 15% and 10% = 15 + 10 – 15 x 10/100

= 25 – 1.5

= 23.5 %

Then, selling price of an electric fan = 300 – 300 x 23.5/100

= 300 – 70.5

= Rs.229.5

Then, the selling price would be Rs. 229.5.

Hence, the correct answer is option (3) Rs. 229.5

15% means (15/100)*300=45

300-45=255

next 10% means (10/100)*255=25.5

255-25.5=229.50
