(100 – x)% of 90% of 720 = 550.80

=> (100 – x)/100 x 90/100 x 720 = 550.80

= (100-x) = [55080/(9 x 72) = 85

=> x= 15

second discount rate =15%

C.P. = Rs (100/112 x 560)

= Rs 500

=35.3%

- Let retail price = Rs. 100 Then, commission = Rs.36

S.P. = Rs. (100-36) = Rs. 64

But, profit =8.8%

C.P. = Rs.(100/108.8 x 64) = Rs 1000/17

Now commission = Rs.12 New S.P.= Rs. (100-12) = Rs.88.

Gain = Rs.(88-1000/17) = Rs. 496/17

Gain% = (496/17 x 17/1000 x 100)% = 49.6%
