The difference in prices when a commodity is sold at a profit of 4% and at a profit of 6% is Rs3 Find the selling prices off the commodity in the two cases

Let the CP of the commodity be Rs *x*.

When commodity is sell at a profit of 4%, then,

SP =

When commodity is sell at a profit of 6%, then,

SP =

According to the given condition,

Difference in SP = Rs 3

⇒ 53x / 50 - 26x / 25 = Rs 3

53x /50 - 52x / 50 = 3

x / 50 = 3

x = 50 × 3 = 150

Therefore the CP is Rs 150.

So, SP of commodity when sold at a profit of 4% =

and SP of commodity when sold at a profit of 6% =
