Q:

Every year before the festive season, a brand store increases the price of the product by 42% and then introduce two successive discount of 10% and 11% respectively. What is percentage loss and percentage gain ?

A) 3.25% loss B) 13.742% loss
C) 3.25% gain D) 13.742% gain
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 13.742% gain

Explanation:

Let CP = 100,
42 % increase => SP = 142
10 % discount in SP => ((142 x 10)/100) = 14.2
So 1st SP = (142 - 14.2) = 127.8, again 12 % discount in 1st SP ((127.8 x 11)/100) = 14.058
2nd SP = (127.8 - 14.058) = 113.742,
So finally CP = 100, SP = 113.742, => gain = 13.742%.
