One way single person fare is 100. Therefore 2 way is 200. For 5 persons it is 200 x 5 = 1000 Now 1st discount is of 10 % on total fare, which is 100( 10 % of 1000). And as the group is of more than 4, an additional discount of 5 % on total fare, which is 50( 5 % of 1000). Hence total discount is equal to 100 + 50 = 150. Therefore tickets are charged at Rs 1000 - 150 = 850.
