# what should be the selling price of the item to gain 25% profit?

If an item purchased in Rs.8,000, what should be the selling price of the item to gain 25% profit?

- Rs.1,000
- Rs.9,000
- Rs.10,000
- Rs.11,000

**Answer: (3) Rs. 10, 000**

**Explanation:-
**The cost price of an item = Rs. 8, 000

Profit = 25%

Then, the selling price of the same item = 8, 000 + 8, 000 x 25/100

= 8, 000 + 2, 000

= Rs. 10, 000

Then, the selling price of the same item is Rs. 10, 000.

Hence, the answer is (3) Rs. 10, 000.
