List price of a book is Rs.100. A dealer sells three such books for Rs.274.50 after allowing discount at a certain rate. Find the rate of discount

 a) 8.16%
 b) 8.5%
 c) 8.34 %
 d) 8.75 %
SSC CGL-2015

8.5%.
Solution
Marked price = Rs 100
Marked price of 3 books = Rs. 300
Selling price of 3 books = Rs. 274.50
Discount = 300 - 274.5 = 25.5
Discount on Rs.300 = 25.5
Discount on Rs.100 = 25.5 x 100 /300 = 8.5
So the rate of discount is 8.5%
