## The marked price of a ceiling fan is Rs3,250 and _ the shopkeeper allows a discount of 8% on it. What is the selling price of the fan?

(a) Rs3,070

(b) Rs2,590

(c) Rs3,270

**(d) Rs2,990**

The selling price (\(SP\)) of the ceiling fan after applying a discount can be calculated using the formula:

\[ SP = \text{Marked Price} – \left(\frac{\text{Discount Percentage}}{100} \times \text{Marked Price}\right) \]

Given that the marked price (\(MP\)) is Rs3,250 and the discount is 8%, we can substitute these values into the formula:

\[ SP = 3,250 – \left(\frac{8}{100} \times 3,250\right) \]

\[ SP = 3,250 – 260 \]

\[ SP = 2,990 \]

Therefore, the selling price of the ceiling fan, after applying an 8% discount, is Rs2,990.
