 # ML Aggarwal Solutions Class 8 Mathematics Solutions for Percentage Exercise 7.3 in Chapter 7 - Percentage

A dealer gave a 9% discount on an electric fan and charges ₹ 728 from the customer. Find the marked

price of the fan.

Consider ₹ x as the M.P. of the fan

Discount = 9%

We know that

Amount of discount = 9% of ₹ x

It can be written as

= 9/100 × x

= ₹ 9x/100

Here

Charges for customer = ₹ x - ₹9x/100

Substituting the values

728 = (100x – 9x)/ 100

By further calculation

728 = 91x/100

So we get

x = (728 × 100)/ 91

x = 8 × 100

x = 800

Therefore, the marked price of the fan is ₹ 800.
