    Given

    • Seliing price (SP)=Rs.2400
    • Loss%= 4%

    To Find

    • Cost price (CP)
    • the SP at which he should have sold in order to get 8% profit.

    ___________________________

    Formula Used

    •  \boxed{ \pink{\sf CP=  \left(\dfrac{SP×100}{100-Loss \%} \right)}}
    • \boxed{\pink{\sf SP= \left( \dfrac{100+P \%}{100} \right) × CP}}

    _____________________

    Solution

    Here’s

    SP= Rs.2400

    Loss=4%

    On putting the value of SP and Loss In Formula We get,

    \\{\implies\sf CP=  \left(\dfrac{2400×100}{100-4} \right)}

    {\implies\sf CP=  \dfrac{240000}{96} }

    {~~~~~~~~~\sf CP= 2500}\\\\

    Now

    We Need To Find

    • SP at which he should have sold in order to get 8% profit.

    CP= Rs.2500

    Profit = 8%

    On Subtuting The value of CP and Profit In Formula we get,

    \\{\implies\sf SP= \left( \dfrac{100+8}{100} \right) × 2500}

    {\implies\sf SP= \ \dfrac{108}{100}  × 2500}

    {\implies\sf SP= 108 × 25}

    ~~~~~~~~~~\sf SP= 2700\\\\\\\\

    • Cost price=Rs.2500
    • Selling Price at which he should have sold in order to get 8% Profit =Rs.2700
