# By selling a tie for rupees 252 A shopkeeper gains 25% at what price should he sell the tie to gain 35%

Gain percent = 5 %

Selling price = 252

=> Cost Price + Gain = 252

=>a + 5 % of a = 252

=> a + 5a/ 100 = 252

=>a + a/20 = 252

=>21a/20 = 252

=>a = 252 ? 20 / 21

=>a = 12 ? 20

=>a = 240

Cost Price = Rs 240

Now,

To get 35 % Gain,

Selling price = Cost Price + 35% of Cost Price

SP = 240 + 35? 240 / 100

SP = 240 + 7 ? 12

SP = 240 + 84

SP = Rs 324

To get 35 % Profit, he should sell the tie in Rs 324
