Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}\text{Let the CP be 100}\\ \mathrm{SP}=100+12\%\text{ of }100\\ \quad=112\\ \text{If the marked price be X , then}\\ \begin{array}{l}90\%\text{ of }X=112\\ \Rightarrow x=\frac{112\times100}{90}\\ \Rightarrow x=\text{ Rs. }\frac{1120}{9}\\ \text{Hence, required ratio}\\ \begin{array}{l}=100:\frac{1120}{9}\\ =900:1120\\ =45:56\end{array}\end{array}\end{array}$
