# Find the Gain Percent at the Original Price? If

An article is sold at a certain price. By selling it at 2/3 of that price one loses 10%. Find the gain percent at the original price?

- 15%
- 25%
- 35%
- 45%

**Answer: (3) 35%
Explanation:-**

Let the original S.P be = Rs.X

Then, new selling price = 2X/3

Loss = 10%

So, Cost price = 100 x 2X/90 x 3 = 20X/27

Now, C.P = 20X /27 and C.P = X

Then, Gain = X – 20X/27

= 7X/27

Gain% = 7X x 100 x 27/27 x 20X = 35%

Hence, the gain percent at the original price is 35%.
