Excel Harrison answer;
0R
Loss%=loss/c.p x100
note that loss=c.p -s.p
therefore:
15=c.p-595/c.p(100)
cross multiplied:
15c.p=100c.p-59500
collect like terms:
100c.p-15c.p=59500
85c.p=59500
make c.p the subject of the formular.
C.p=59500/85
=700

jimoh peter answer;
Let d c.p be y.
% S.p=%c.p -%loss
=100%y-15%y
=85%y
this means d amount he sold d aticle is 85% of d cost price,y,.
Which is hence,=#595
Therefore 85%y=595
85y/100=595
85y=595*100
85y=59500
y=59500/85
y=#700
the cost price is #700(i.e 'c')
