Question

A bookseller sold $$200$$ copies of a book at a loss of $$5%$$. If each copy costs him $$rs 40$$, find the selling price of the book.


Solution

$$N=200$$
$$CP=40$$
$$\Rightarrow \left(\dfrac{SP-SP}{CP}\right)\times 100=5$$
$$\dfrac{40-SP}{40}\times 100=5$$
$$40\times 20-20 SP=40$$
$$800=40=SP$$
$$760=20 SP$$
$$SP=\dfrac{760}{20}=38$$
$$SP=200\times 38$$
$$=7600$$
