# A man sold his scooter for Rs. 8000 and lost 20% . for what amount he should have sold it to gain 20%?

Suppose cost price of Scooter is Rs.x.
Loss = 20%
Then selling price =
And the given selling price of scooter is Rs.8000. So we have;

So the cost price of scooter is Rs.10000.
For a gain of 20%; Selling price =
Therefore selling price of scooter should be Rs.12000 to gain 20%.

sp of scooter=8000

loss%

cp=sp*100/100-L%

8000*100/80=10,000

if P is 205 then sp=

sp=cp(100+p)/100

10,000(120)/100=12,000

sp=12,000

pls thumbs up hope it helped u:)

• Solution 1:
• Selling Price (SP) of scooter = Rs 8000
• Loss % = 20%
• Cost Price (CP) of Scooter = ?
• Find the cost price of scooter:
• CP = 100/100 - Loss% X SP
• CP = 100/100-20 X 8000
• CP = 100/80 X 8000
• CP = 800000/80
• CP = 10000
• Hence the cost price of scooter is 10000 Rs.
• Solution 2:
• Gain % = 20%
• CP = 10000
• SP = ?
• Find the Selling price:
• SP = 100 + Gain% /100 X CP
• SP = 100 + 20 / 100 X 10000
• SP = 120 / 100 X 10000
• SP = 1200000/100
• SP = 12000
• Hence the SP is Rs. 12000
• 1
• Selling Price (SP) of scooter = Rs 8000
• Loss % = 20%
• Cost Price (CP) of Scooter = ?
• Find the cost price of scooter:
• CP = 100/100 - Loss% X SP
• CP = 100/100-20 X 8000
• CP = 100/80 X 8000
• CP = 800000/80
• CP = 10000

Hence the cost price of scooter is 10000 Rs.
