Let the marked price be x
Discount percent = Discount/Marked Price x 100
20 = \(\frac{Discount}{x}\) × 100
Discount = \(\frac{20}{100}\times x\)
= \(\frac{x}{5}\)
Discount = Marked price – Sale price
\(\frac{x}{5}\) = x – ₹ 1600
x – \(\frac{x}{5}\) = 1600
\(\frac{4x}{5}\) = 1600
x = 1600 x \(\frac{5}{4}\)
= 2000
Therefore, the marked price was ₹ 2000.
