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 = x-x×20100 = x-x5 = 4x5
And the given selling price of scooter is Rs.8000. So we have;
4x5 = 8000x = 8000×54 = 10000
So the cost price of scooter is Rs.10000.
For a gain of 20%; Selling price = 10000+10000×20100 = 10000+2000 = 12000
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.

hope it helps!thumbs up please!
