6 During a sale a shop offered a discount of 10% on the market prices of all the items. What would a customer have to pay for a pair of jeans marked at Rs 1450 and two shirts marked at Rs 850 each?

Since the 10% discount is on all the items, we can calculate the Selling price by totaling the Cost price of all item bought.


Total Cost price(CP) of the items he bought = CP of a pair of jeans + CP of two shirts = Rs.(1450 + 850 + 850) = Rs. 3150

\therefore Selling price of these items = (100- 10)% of Rs. 3150 = 90% x Rs.3150 = Rs. 2835

\therefore The customer has to pay Rs. 2835.
