### Rate Of First Discount:

**Question:**

An article is listed at Rs. 920. A customer pays Rs. 742.90 for it after getting two successive discounts. If the rate of first discount is 15%, the rate of 2nd discount is:

**Option A):**

12%**Option B):**

3%**Option C):**

5%**Option D):**

8%

**Correct Answer is Option C):**

5%

**Explanation:**

920----15%↓(1st discount))---→782--------x%↓(2nd discount)--→742.90.

Then, x% = (782-742.90)*100/742.90

= (39.1*100)/742.9

= 5%.
