We have, M.P. = Rs 1600 and S.P. = Rs 1180

therefore    Discount = M.P. - S.P. = Rs 1600 - Rs 1180 = Rs 420

Now,

       When M.P. is Rs 1600, discount = Rs. 420

       When M.P. is Re 1, discount  =Refrac {420}{1600}

      When M.P. is Rs 100, discount  =Rsleft ( frac {420}{1600}times 100 right )=Rs : 26.25

Hence, discount = 26.25 %
