Solution:
Your problem -> The printed price of a saree is Rs 900 . A cloth-mearchant purchases it at 15 % commission. He spends Rs 35 for roll-polish and then sells the saree at the printed price. What is the prifit of the merchant in percentage ?

A cloth-mearchant purchases a saree at 15 % commission

Purchase Price = Printed price - commission = 100 - 15 = 85

 Printed Price Purchase Price 100 85 900 ?

Purchase price = 85 × 900/100 = 765

The Purchase price = 765

C.P. = purchase price + other expenses = 765 + 35 = 800

S.P. = printed price = Rs 900

Profit = "S.P." - "C.P." = 900 - 800 = 100
