Original selling price of the book = Rs x
Increased selling price = Rs 10 + x
Total amount spent = Rs 3000
No. of books can be bought with original seling price = 3000/x
No. of books can be bought with increased price = 300/(10+x)
As per the question, 

 \frac{3000}{x} =  \frac{3000}{x} + 10

 \frac{3000}{x} =  \frac{3000+100+10x}{10+x}
On crossmultiplication and simplification 

x²+10x - 3000 = 0

(x+60(x-50) = 0

x = 50

The original selling price = Rs 50

1.
1. Original selling price of  book = Rs x
2. Increased selling price = Rs 10 + x
Total amount spent = Rs 3000
Number of books can be bought with original seling price = 3000/x
Number of books can be bought with increased price = 300/(10+x)
According to above asked question,

by crossmultiplication we get,

x²+10x - 3000 = 0

(x+60(x-50) = 0

x = 50

The original selling price = Rs 50
