# What Was The Cost Price of T.V.

Sonam sold a T.V. at 8% gain. Had it been sold for Rs. 750 more, the gain would have been 14%. The cost price (in Rs) of the T.V. was

- 12,500
- 9,600
- 14,600
- 12,800

**Answer: (1) 12,500**

**Explanation:-**

Let be the cost price of a T. V. = Rs.X

According to the question,

X x 14/100 – X x 108/100 = 750

X ( 14 – 8)/100 = 750

X (6/100) = 750

6 X = 750 x 100

X = 750 x 100/6

X = Rs.12,500

Hence, the cost price of the T. V. is Rs.12,500.
