Question 1

# Shiv sold a shirt for ₹ 184 at a loss of 8%. To make a profit of 5% he should have sold the shirt for:

Solution

Loss = 8 %
Let the Cp be Rs x .
Sp = Rs ( x - 8% of x ) = Rs( x - 2x/25 ) = Rs 23x/25 .
So , 23x/25 = 184
or, x =( 184 ×25 )÷23
or , x = 200
Cp = Rs 200

for profit 5%

$$Sp=\frac{105}{100}\times200$$

$$Sp=210$$
