# What will be the Sell Price?

If a watch is sold for Rs. 120, there is a loss of 15%. For a profit of 2%, the watch is to be sold for.

- Rs. 144
- Rs. 175
- Rs. 185
- Rs. 165

**Answer: (1) Rs. 144**

**Explanation:-
**The selling price of a watch = Rs. 120

Loss = 15%

Then, the cost price of a watch = 120 x 100/85

= 120 x 20/17

= Rs. 141.17

Profit = 2%

Then, the selling price = 141.17 + 141.17 x 2/100

= 141.17 + 2.823

= 143.993 = Rs. 144

Then, for a profit of 2%, the watch is to be sold for Rs. 144.

Hence, the answer is (1) Rs. 144.
