**Given:**

A fan is marked at rupees 625 . During the winter season, the shopkeeper allow discount and sell the fan for rupees 562.50.

**To do:**

We have to find the discount percent allowed.

**Solution:**

MP $=Rs.\ 625$

SP $=Rs.\ 562.50$

We know that,

Discount $=MP-SP$

$=Rs.\ (625-562.50)$

$=Rs.\ 62.50$

Discount $ \%= \frac{Discount}{MP} \times 100$

$=\frac{62.50}{625}\times100$

$=10 \%$

**The discount percent allowed is $10 \%$.**
