Solution :


Let Marked Price = MP

By given information saving Rs 15 is 20% of marked price i-e

15=\frac{20}{100} MP

\Rightarrow MP=\frac{1500}{20}

\Rightarrow MP=75

We use the formula for marked price ;

Discount = Marked Price - Selling Price


D = MP - SP

From this we can find SP

\Rightarrow SP= MP-D

Since discount is Rs 15 and MP is 75 as we calculated above;

\Rightarrow SP= 75-15= Rs 60

So, Rs 60 were paid
