# What will be the Cost Price of Table? If

By selling a table for Rs. 400 instead of Rs.500, loss percent is increased by 10%. Find the cost price of table?

- Rs. 1200
- Rs.1500
- Rs. 1000
- None of these

**Answer: (3) Rs.1000**

**Explanation:**

Let the cost price of a table be Rs. X

Loss = 10 %.

And difference of selling price = 500 – 400

= Rs.100

Then. X x 10/100 = 100

10 X = 100 x 100

X = 10000/10

X = Rs.1000

Then, the cost price of a table is Rs.1000.

Hence, the answer is (3) Rs.1000.
