A music store has reduced the price of all stock by 25%. A customer who purchased a CD from this store paid Rs 240. What is the usual price of this CD, and what is the cash discount?

selling price =Rs 240,

discount = 25% of the marked price

but: (marked price) = (selling price) + discount

So the selling price must be: (100-25 = 75)% of the marked price, i.e.:

selling price = × (marked price)

So:

marked price = × (selling price)

= ×240

= 320

The CD usually costs Rs320, and the cash discount is: (320-240) = Rs80
