Answer / karthick

14,000/100=140
Hence 1%= Rs 140/-
11%=Rs 1540
14,000-1540=Rs 12460/-
12460-11214=1246
then 1246/140=8.9%
i) if the % calculated from the first amount of 14,000 = 8.9%
ii) if the % calculated from the second amount of 12460= 10%

Answer / sunil902

Marked Price (a)= Rs.14,000/-.
First Discount (b)= 11%.
Then first discounted amount (c) is (a*b)-a = Rs. 12,460/-.
Final Discount (d)= x%
so final discount would be on Rs. 12,460/-.
then 12,460*x/100 = 11,214.
After calculating
Final discount is 10%.

Answer / rajesh mistry

Total Discount 14000-11214 = 2786

So, 2786 = 11% of 14000 + X% of 14000
(let assume X be a second discount rate)
2786 = 1540 + 140 X

1246 = 140 X

There For X= 8.9
There For Second Discount Rate = 8.9%
