Given, 

Cost Price = $825
Sell Price = ?
Loss percentage = 8%

----------------------------------------------

1st method:

We know, S.P = C.P - Loss

Let S.P be x.

Then, 

x=825+(825*8%)

=> x=825+(825* \frac{8}{100} )

=> x=825+(825*\frac{4}{50})

=> x=825+(165*\frac{4}{10})

=> x=825+(33*\frac{4}{2})

=> x=825+(33*\frac{2}{1})

=> x=825+(33*2)

=> x=825+(66)

=> x=825+66

=> x=891

So, x is equal to $891.
Therefore, the Sell Price is $891.

----------------------------------------------

2nd method:

We know, Loss percentage =  \frac{loss}{C.P}  × 100%

Let S.P be x.

Then, 

8= \frac{loss}{C.P}*100 %

=> 8= \frac{C.P-S.P}{C.P}*100 %

=> 8= \frac{825-S.P}{825}*100 %

=> 8= \frac{825-x}{825}*100 %

=> 8% ÷ 100=\frac{825-x}{825}

=>  \frac{8}{100}  ÷  \frac{100}{100}=\frac{825-x}{825}

=>  \frac{8}{100}*\frac{100}{100}=\frac{825-x}{825}

=>  \frac{8}{100}=\frac{825-x}{825}

=>  \frac{2}{25}=\frac{825-x}{825}

=>  \frac{2}{25}*825=825-x

=> 2*33=825-x

=> 66=825-x

=> 66-825=-x

=> -x=6-825

=> -x=-819

=> -1x=-819

=> x= \frac{-819}{-1}

=> x= \frac{819}{1}

=> x=819

So, x is equal to $891.
Therefore, the Sell Price is $891.
