It is given that the cost price of article is \$19800.

By selling the article the shop makes 20% profit.

This means if the shop earns \$100 for an article by selling then the cost price of article is \$80.

The price of the sold article `= 19800/80xx100 = \$24750`

This \$24750 refers to the 10% discount of marked price.

This means if the price of article is \$100 then the selling price is \$90.

Marked price `= 24750/90xx100 = \$27500`

So the marked price of the article is \$27500.
