A man bought a horse for a certain sum and sold it, at a loss of 8 % on his outlay. If he had received Rs. 1800 more, he would have gained 14½ % on his outlay. What did the horse cost?
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option B
CP = (Difference in SP) ÷ (% Difference in profit) CP of the horse = 1800×100/14.5-(-8) = 1800×100/22.5 ⇒ CP = 8000.
