Q:

A trader marked the price of the T.V. 30% above the cost price of the T.V. and gave the purchaser 10% discount on the marked price, thereby gaining Rs.340. Find the cost price of the T.V ?

A) Rs. 2000 B) Rs. 1600
C) Rs. 2200 D) Rs. 2100

Answer:   A) Rs. 2000



Explanation:

Let 'x' be the cost price.
Now Marked price = x + 30x/100 = 13x/10
10% discount = 10/100 x 13x/10 = 13x/100
Selling price = 13x/10 - 13x/100 = 117x/100
Given gain = 340
Here gain = 117x/100 - x = 17x/100 = 340 => x = Rs. 2000.
