. A dealer allows 10% discount on the list price of a certain article and yet makes a profit of Rs. 25% on each article. Find the cost price of the article

when list price is Rs. 50.
Sol: Let the cost price of articles be Rs. 100


List price of article is rs 50
10% discount is offered and is 10*50/100= Rs 5
Sale price =LP-discount=  Rs 45
Profit is 25%
So we have cost price = 100*45/125= Rs 36
Cost price of article=Rs 36
