# 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

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.
