CP for the man who bought it, as he spends 1000 on repair. = 19000 + 1000 = 20000 Profit = 25000 – 20000 = 5000. %Profit $=\frac{5000 \times 100}{20000}=25 \% Short-Cut 25000(MP) == 20%(Disc.) ⇒ 20000 == 5%(disc.) ⇒19000(CP) Spends on repair = Rs. 1000 Then, CP becomes = 19000 + 1000 = 20000 Profit = 5000 % profit $=\frac{5000 \times 100}{20000}=25 \%$
