# If a bicycle was bought for ₹650 and sold for ₹585, then the percentage of profit is10. State whether the statement is true or false

**Solution:**

If a bicycle was bought for ₹650 and sold for ₹585, then the percentage of profit is 10.

We have to determine if the given statement is true or false.

According to the question,

CP = ₹650

SP = ₹585

Since CP > SP, it is loss

Loss = CP - SP

= 650 - 585

= ₹65

We know, Loss% = Loss/CP × 100

= 65/650 × 100

= 1/10 × 100

= 10%

Therefore, loss% = 10%
