# Amina buys a book for ₹ 275 and sells it at a loss of 15%. How much does she sell it for?

**Solution:**

Let's calculate the total loss amount using the loss%.

Loss is given by the formula:

Loss = (Loss% / 100) × Cost Price

Selling Price = Cost Price - Loss

Cost of book = Rs. 275

Loss = 15% of Cost price

Total Loss = 15/100 × 275

= Rs. 41.25

So, Selling Price = Cost Price – Loss

= 275 - 41.25

= Rs. 233.75
