Solution:
Your problem `->` A carpenter made a table which cost him Rs 1500 . He decided the price so that he would get 20 % profit. He gave 8 % commission on the decided price while selling. Find the sales price of the table and the profit of the carpenter.


A carpenter decided the price so that he would get `20` % profit

Decided Price = C.P. + Profit `= 100 + 20 = 120` .

C.P. Decided Price
100 120
1500 ?

Decided price = `120 × 1500/100 = 1800`

`:.` Decided price = `1800`

He gave `8` % commission on the decided price

S.P. = Decided price - commission `= 100 - 8 = 92`

Decided Price S.P.
100 92
1800 ?

S.P. = `92 × 1800/100 = 1656`

`:.` the sales price is Rs `1656`

Profit `= "S.P." - "C.P." = 1656 - 1500 = 156`

`:.` Profit is Rs `156`

C.PProfit
1500 156
100 ?

Profit = `156 × 100/1500 = 10.4`

`:.` the sales price of the table is Rs `1656` and the profit of carpenter is `10.4` %
