Expert Answer:

Given: MP = Rs 750

And, discount = 30%


a) Discount in Rs 


Multiply each side by 75.

So, the discount is Rs 225.


The original selling price minus the discount is the sale price.


b)To find the sale price, subtract the discount from the original selling price/marked price.

750- 225 = 525

So, the sale price of the jacket is Rs525.
