A) 26850 B) 20900 C) 28875 D) 25850 Correct Answer :20900 Explanation :Let, the CP of washing machine be x, and the CP of the chimney will be (57750 - x) SP of washing machine = SP of Chimney x* (100-24)/100 = (57750-x)*(100+34)/100 x* 76/100 = (57750-x)*134/100 76x = 134*57750 - 134*x 210x = 134*57750 x = 134*57750 / 210 x = 36850 CP of washing machine, x = 36850 CP of chimney = (57750 - 36850) So, the cheaper item will be chimney = 20900 What percent profit is made by selling an article at a certain price if by selling at 2/3rd of that price, there would be a loss of 30%? एक वस्तु को 2 / 3rd मूल्य पर व्रिकय करने पर 30% की हानि होगी, तो निश्चित मूल्य पर उसे व्रिकय करने से क्या प्रतिशत लाभ मिलता है?
