SP1 = Rs.8579 SP2 = Rs.6341Formulas used:
Profit = Selling price - Cost price
Loss = Cost price - Selling price
Profit percent = Profit/Cost price × 100Calculation:
Let the profit be = Rs.xAccording to the question:
CP1 = CP2
Rs.8579 - x = x + Rs.6341
⇒ 8579 - 6341 = 2x ⇒ 2238/2 = x ⇒ Profit = Rs.1119
Now, Cost price = 8579 - 1119 = Rs.7460
Profit percent = 1119/7460 × 100∴ The required profit percent = 15%When profit or loss are equal:
Cost price = (SP1 + SP2)/2
⇒ (Rs.8579 + Rs.6341)/2 = Rs.7460
Loss = Rs.7460 - Rs.6341 = Rs.1119Profit % = 1119/7460 × 100 = 15%
