    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.
