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

$\dpi{100} \therefore$    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  $\dpi{100} =Re\frac {420}{1600}$

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

Hence, discount = 26.25 %
