In a scheme, a pack of three soaps with MRP Rs.45 is available for Rs.42. If it still gives a profit of 5% to the shopkeeper, then the cost price of the pack is?

Applying the equation, Selling price – Cost price = Profit

Selling price = Rupees 42.00

Cost price = x

Profit = (5/100) x

Therefore, 42 – x = (5/100) x

42 = 5x/100 + x

42 = 105x/100

4200/105 = x

x = 40

Hence, Cost price of the soap pack is Rupees 40.00
