Given

Marked Price = Rs. 840

Selling Price =Rs. 714

To Find

Discount and Discount %

Formula

Discount = Marked Price – Selling Price

Discount % =( Discount/selling Price )x100

Now Take

Discount = Marked Price – Selling Price

Discount = Rs. 840 – Rs 714

Discount = 126

Now

Discount % =( Discount/selling Price )x100

Discount % = (126/840) x 100

Discount % = 0.15 x 100

Discount % = 15%

Discount = Rs. 126

Discount % = 15%

Marked price of the item = Rs. 840.

Selling price of the item = Rs. 714.

Discount = Marked price – selling price

= Rs. (840 – 714) = Rs. 126

Percentage of discount = (Discount / Marked Price) x 100%

= (126/840) x 100%

= 15%
