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

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

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')

% 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')
