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`

ProfitC.P.
15 100
300 ?

`C.P. = 100 × 300/15 = 2000`
