In order to maintain the price line, a trader allows a discount of 12 % on the marked price of goods in his ship. However, he still makes a gross profit of 32 % on the cost price. Find the profit percent he would have made on the selling price had he sold at the marked price.
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option C
Let CP = 100. SP = 132. This is after a discount of 12%, thus the marked price must be 132/0.88 = 150. Thus he is marking the product 50% above the cost price. Hence the profit will be 50%.
