# What is the Watch Price? If

A man bought a watch at 25% discount on the original price. He got Rs. 40 more than the original price by selling it at 140% of the price at which he bought. The price of buying the watch was:

- Rs.900
- Rs.600
- Rs.800
- Rs.700

Answer …(2) Rs.600

let original price is X,

Discount = 25% of x=25x/100 ,

Cost Price =x-25x/100 =75x/100

Selling price =140% of C.P. =(75x/100) X 140/100 = 1.05x

Since selling price is Rs. 40 more than Original Price

Therefore .. 1.05x-x=40

x= 800

Hence Cost Price is (75X800)/100=600Rs.
