Mohit sold a T.V. for Rs. 3,600; gaining one-sixth of its selling price. Find :
(i) the gain
(ii) the cost price of the T.V.
(iii) the gain percent.

#### Solution

S.P. of T.V. = Rs. 3,600

Gain =1/6 of (3600) =1/6xx3600 = Rs. 600

(i) Thus gain = Rs. 600

(ii) Cost price = 3600 − 600 = Rs. 3000

(iii) Gain % =600/3000xx100=60/3=20%
