    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.
