Here we suppose that cost price
Now first sale price is Rs 1230 i-e
Putting values of Loss, CP and SP1
Simplifying gives us;
So cost price is Rs 1500
Now had it been sold for Rs 1600, then we see it would have gain of Rs 100 !
i-e Profit = P = 100
Now to find what percentage it (the profit of 100 rupees) makes of cost price, we suppose that it makes ‘x’ [ercent of CP !
So the option ‘a’ is the answer
