Your problem -> A watch manufacturing company decided the price with 25 % profit on the cost price. By selling a watch with 8 % discount on th printed price, the company has a profit of Rs 300 . Find the cost-price of a watch.

A watch manufacturing company decided the price with 25 % profit on the cost price

Printed price = C.P. + profit = 100 + 25 = 125

By selling a watch with 8 % discount on th printed price

S.P. = C.P. - discount = 100 - 8 = 92

 C.P. S.P. 100 92 125 ?

S.P. = 92 × 125/100 = 115

Profit = S.P. - C.P. = 115 - 100 = 15

 Profit C.P. 15 100 300 ?

C.P. = 100 × 300/15 = 2000

:. the cost price is Rs 2000.
