#### Solution

Purchase price = Rs 1,800

Expenditure = Rs 600

Total price = Rs 1,800+ Rs 600 = Rs 2,400

M.P. of article = Rs 2,400 + 20% of Rs 2400

`=>Rs 2400 + 20/100 xx 2400`

`=> Rs 2400 + Rs 480 = Rs 2880`

Cost price for customer = Rs 2880 + 12% of Rs 2880

`= Rs 2880 + 12/100 xx 2880`

= Rs 2880 + Rs 345.60

= Rs 3225.60
