Let the c.p of the horse be rs.X,then C.P of the carrige =rs(3000-x)

20% of x-10% of(3000-x)=2% of 3000
=>x/5-(3000-x)/10=60
=>2x-3000+x=600=3x+3600
=>x=1200
=>hence,C.P of the horse is 1200..............................

Why this 20% of x is not 120% of x if in the question it is given that he sold the horse at gain of 20%
