# Juhi sells a washing machine for Rs 13,500. She loses 20% in the bargain. What was the price at which she bought it?

**Solution:**

Let us assume the cost price of the washing machine = Rs 100

Loss is given as 20% of cost price = Rs 20

So, the selling price will be = Cost price - loss

= 100 - 20

= Rs 80

Using the unitary method.

If the selling price is Rs 80, the cost price = Rs 100

If the selling price is Rs13,500

the cost price =(100/80) × 13500

=Rs 16,875
