# Find the Original Price of The Article was :

If the cost of an article is ₹ P after two successive reductions of 20% and 25%, the original price of the article was

- ₹
__4__P/5 - ₹
__3__P/5 - ₹
__5__P /3 - ₹
__5__P/4

**Answer: (2) Rs. 3P/5**

**Explanation:-
**The cost price of an article = Rs. P

Successive reductions = 20% and 25%

Then, Successive reductions = 20 + 25 – 20 x 25/100

= 45 – 5

= 40%

Then, original price = P – P x 40/100

= P – 2 P/5

= (5P – 2P)/5

= Rs. 3 P/5

Hence, the answer is (2) Rs. 3P/5.
