# Harish bought a gas-chullah for ₹900 and later sold it to Archana at a profit of 5 per cent. Archana used it for a period of two years and later sold it to Babita at a loss of 20 per cent. For how much did Babita get it

**Solution:**

Harish bought a gas-chullah for ₹900 and later sold it to Archana at a profit of 5 per cent. Archana used it for a period of two years and later sold it to Babita at a loss of 20 per cent.

We have to find how much did Babita get.

According to the question,

CP of gas-chullah bought by Harish = ₹900

Harish sold chullah to Archana at a profit of 5%

CP of chullah for Archana = 900 + 5% of 900

= 900 + (5/100) × 900

= 900 + 5(9)

CP of gas-chullah for Archana = ₹945

CP of Babita = 945 - 20% of 945

= 945 - (20/100) × 945

= 945 - 945/5

= 945 - 189

CP = ₹756

Therefore, Babita got ₹756 for gas-chullah.
