Explanation: Let cost price and Marked price of scooter is 10 units.
10profit 20% —> 12
10discount 10% —> 9
Acc. to question

         CP        SP        MP
         10x9      12x9        
                   9x12         10x12
Total    90        108       120

Make SP equal
Now, profit = SP – CP
= 108 – 90 = 18
18 unit -> 7200
1 unit -> 400
120 -> 48000
Hence, the marked price of scooter was Rs 48000.
