QUESTION

# A man buys some toffees. If he sells them at 175 rupees, he will make a profit of 25 rupees. At what price should he sell them to make a profit of 52 rupees?

Hint: In order to find a new selling price with some extra profit first we will calculate this extra profit that will be the profit he wants to gain $-$ the profit he is gaining.

$= 52 - 25 = Rs.27$
Therefore, the selling price should be $= 175 + 27 = Rs.202$
Hence, man should sell them at a price of $Rs.202$ to make a profit of $Rs.52$
