%loss of C.p=loss

15% of C.p=C.p-S.p

15% * c.p=c.p-595;15%C.P+595=C.p

15C.p+59500=100C.p

::C.P=59500/85

=*700*

595/85 (85 which is d remaining percent) to give 7 wic is 1(one percent). So,7 X 100 to give 700 wic is the cost price.

Given:

C.P=? , S.P=#595 , %loss=15%==>100%-15%=85%

From %loss={S.P-C.P/C.P }*100%

85%=#595-c.p/c.p *100%

0.85=#595-c.p/c.p *1

0.85*c.p=#595-c.p

0.85c.p+c.p=#595

1.85c.p=#595

c.p=#595/1.85

c.p=#320 to nearest whole number (NO ANSWER IN THE GIVEN OPTIONS)

%=15,CP=?,SP=#595

%15=CP-595÷CP*100=100CP-15CP=59500

Therefore 85CP=59500

CP=59500÷85

CP=700 ANS

Let d c.p be y.

% S.p=%c.p -%loss

=100%y-15%y

=85%y

this means d amount he sold d aticle is 85% of d cost price,y,.

Which is hence,=#595

Therefore 85%y=595

85y/100=595

85y=595*100

85y=59500

y=59500/85

y=#700

the cost price is #700(i.e 'c')

Let d cp of article b x. There4 were %loss=(cp-sp)/cp . Were sp=595 n %loss=15% there4: 15/100=(x-595)/x by cross multiplying we have 15x=100x-59500 by collecting like terms 100x-15x=59500 there4 85x=59500 , x=59500/85 there4 x=700

%L=Loss/CP*100;%L=CP-SP/CP*100.From d parameters given L=15%,SP=#595,CP=? From what we 've above,15/100=CP-595/CP by cross multiplication,15CP=100(CP-595),15CP=100CP-59500,collect like term;15CP-100CP=-59500,-85CP=-59500 divide through by -85,-85CP/-85=-59500/-85.CP=#700
