# A TV marked price Rs 16000 is available on 15 percent off. What is its selling price?(A) Rs 13600(B) Rs 11000(C) Rs 15760(D) Rs 15000 Verified
Given, the marked price of TV is ${\text{M}}{\text{.P}} = {\text{Rs 16000}}$
As we know that selling price of any item is given by ${\text{S}}{\text{.P}} = {\text{M}}{\text{.P}} - \left[ {\left( {\dfrac{{{\text{Percent off}}}}{{100}}} \right) \times \left( {{\text{M}}{\text{.P}}} \right)} \right]$
The selling price of the TV is ${\text{S}}{\text{.P}} = 16000 - \left[ {\left( {\dfrac{{{\text{15}}}}{{100}}} \right) \times \left( {{\text{16000}}} \right)} \right] = 16000 - 2400 = {\text{Rs }}13600$.
Note- In these type of problems, the amount of discount given on the marked price is $\left[ {\left( {\dfrac{{{\text{Percent off}}}}{{100}}} \right) \times \left( {{\text{M}}{\text{.P}}} \right)} \right]$ and finally this discount amount is subtracted from the marked price in order to get the selling price.
