Cost Price=C.P.=Rs. 40,000

1st set of successive discounts=20%, 20%, 10%

2nd set of Successive discounts=40%, 5%, 5%

S.P. of 1st set=80% of 80% of 90% of Rs.40,000=Rs. 23,040

S.P. of 2nd set=60% of 95% of 95% of Rs. 40000=Rs. 21660

Therefore,

The 2nd offer is better,

Customer can save (Rs.23040-Rs.21660)=Rs1380

Ans is Rs. 1380

First choice

Rs 40000 x 0,8 = Rs 32000

Rs 32000 x 0,8 = Rs 25600

Rs 25600 x 0,9 = Rs 23040

new price is Rs 23040

Second choice

Rs 40000 x 0,6 = Rs 24000

Rs 24000 x 0,95=Rs 22800

Rs 22800 x 0,95=Rs 21660

new price is Rs 21660

Therefore second choice is the best offer

Customer can save : 23040 - 21660 = Rs 1380
