### Question 7SSC-CGL 2020 Mar 3 Shift 2

An item is marked at 25% higher than the CP. What will be the percentage gain or loss If the CP increases by 20% and the marked price by 10%?

### Solution in Detail

Let CP = 100

$\displaystyle \therefore$ MP = 125

New CP = 100 + 20% = 120

New MP = 125 + 10% = 137.5

%-Profit = $\displaystyle \frac{137.5 - 120}{120} \times 100$

$\displaystyle \approx 15\%\:\underline{ Ans}$
