By selling a  watch  for rupees 1275 Jared lost 15%at what price should  he sell to make 10%profit


Solution

Let
Original Price of Watch = x
15% of x = x*15% = x*0.15
Given
Selling pirce = 1275 
Original Price - 15% of original pirce = Selling Price
  ie ;   x-0.15x=1275
0.85x=1275
0.85x/0.85=1275/0.85
x=1500 
Original Price of Watch = Rs. 1500
10% of 1500 = 10/100 * 1500 = 1/10 * 1500 = 1500/10 = 150
Selling price at 10% profit = 1500 + 150 = 1650 


He sould sell watch to kae for Rs. 1650 to get a profit of 10%
