segment of the chapter ‘Comparing Quantities’, we will see how to find the original amount

## Finding the Original Amount – Example

Q. In a sale, the price of shoes is advertised as reduced by 20%. If the reduced price

is ₹ 200, what is its original price?

Solution:

Let the original price be ₹ 100.

Reduction = 20 % of original price

20

=

100

× 100

= ₹ 20

∴ Discount = ₹ 20

∴ Reduced price = 100 – 20 = ₹ 80

By using the Unitary method

 If reduced price = 80 Original price price = 100 If reduced price = 200 Original price = ?

∴ 100×200 = 250

80

∴ Original amount is ₹ 250.
