SP = 495

P% = 10%

CP = SP x 100/(100+P%)

=495 x 100/(100+10)

=495 x 100/110

=450

Let the C.P of the article be Rs x
The 10% of x = 10/100 * x = x/10
Therefore the Selling Price = x + x/10
A/q,
=> Selling price = 495
=> x + x/10 = 495
=> (10x + x)/10 = 495
=> 11x/10 = 495
=> 11x = 4950
=> x = 4950/11
=> x = 450
So, the Cost Price (CP) of the article = Rs x = Rs 450
