**Solution:**

Given, a bicycle is purchased for ₹1800

The bicycle is sold at a __profit__ of 12%

We have to find the __selling price__

According to the question,

CP = ₹1800

Profit = 12%

We know, Profit % = Profit/CP × 100

Now, 12 = Profit / 1800 × 100

12 = Profit/18

Profit = 12 × 18

Profit = ₹216

We know, Profit = SP - CP

216 = SP - 1800

SP = 216 + 1800

SP = 2016

Therefore, the selling price is ₹2016
