An almirah is sold at Rs5225 after allowing a discount of 5%. Find its marked price. Please explain with unitary method and also with other method of calculating discount amount.

let MP be x

given,

x - ( 5/100 * x) = 5225 .............. ( i did a shortcut method over here.the operation in the bracket is the discount and then the discount is subtracted from MP to get SP )

so, x - ( x / 20 ) = 5225

open bracket

x - x/20 = 5225

so , 19x / 20 = 5225

so x = 5225 * 20 / 19

so x = 5500

hope u got it !!!!!
