Let marked price of toy be y
∴ S.P. = y × 77 = 77y 100 100 C.P. = y × 77 × 100 = 7y 100 110 10
gains = ₹ 56
∴ gains = SP  CP∴ 77y − 7y = 56 100 10
Correct Option: B
Let marked price of toy be y
∴ S.P. = y × 77 = 77y 100 100 C.P. = y × 77 × 100 = 7y 100 110 10
gains = ₹ 56
∴ gains = SP  CP∴ 77y − 7y = 56 100 10 ⇒ 7y = 56 100 ⇒ y = 100 × 56 = ₹ 800 7
