A car dealer who gives a customer a 20 percent discount on the list price of a car still realizes a net profit of 25 percent of cost. If the dealer's cost is $4800, what is the usual list price of the car?

(A) $6000

(B) $6180

(C) $7200

(D) $7500

(E) $8000


Cost = 4800

Selling price (@25% profit) = 4800 +(1/4)*4800 = 6000

Selling Price = 80% of List price (after discount of 20%)

i.e. List Price = 6000/0.8 = 7500

Answer: option D

SP is \(\frac{125}{100}*4800 = 6000\)

\(\frac{MP*80}{100} = 6000\)

Or, MP = 7500, Answer will be (D)
