Sum

An article is marked at Rs. 2,250. By selling it at a discount of 12%, the dealer makes a profit of 10%. Find :
(i) the selling price of the article.
(ii) the cost price of the article for the dealer.

#### Solution

(i) Marked price = Rs. 2,250

S.P.=(2250(100-12))/100

=(2250xx88)/100

= 45 × 44

= Rs. 1980

(ii) S.P. = Rs. 1980, Profit = 10%

∴ C.P. of the article =100/110xx1980

= 100 × 18
= Rs.1800
