Question

# If percentage of profit made, when an article is sold for $$\mathrm{Rs.}\ 78$$, is twice as when it is sold for $$\mathrm{Rs.}\ 69$$, the cost price of the article is

A
Rs. 49
B
Rs. 51
C
Rs. 57
D
Rs. 60

Solution

## The correct option is B $$\mathrm{Rs.}\ 60$$Let $$CP$$ be $$\mathrm{Rs.}\ x$$.According to the question, $$(78 - x) = 2(69 - x)$$$$78 - x = 138 - 2x$$$$\Rightarrow x = 138 - 78 = 60$$. Hence, $$CP = \mathrm{Rs.}\ 60$$.Mathematics
