# Fill in the blank

Answer :

Selling price of an article = ₹112000

Gain% = 40%

Let x be the cost price of the article.

cost price = selling price – profit % on cost price

Selling price = cost price + profit % on cost price

So, 112000 = 11 2000 = 112000 = 112000 × 100 = 140x

x = x = x = 16000 × 5

x = ₹80000

By selling an article for Rs 1,12,000 a girl gains 40%. The cost price of the article was ₹80000.
