Correct Answer - Option 5 : 15750

**Given**

Selling price of washing machine = Rs. 10500

Loss percentage on selling washing machine = 20%

Profit Kabir wants = 20%

**Formula used**

Cost price = (Selling Price × 100)/ (100 – percentage loss)

Selling Price = Cost Price × (100 + percentage profit)/100

**Calculation **

According to question

Cost price = (10500 × 100)/ (100 – 20)

⇒ Cost price = 1050000/80 = Rs. 13125

For gain profit of 20%

⇒ Selling Price = Cost Price × (100 + percentage profit)/100

⇒ Selling Price = 13125 × (100 + 20)/100 = Rs. 15750

**∴ ****Selling price of the washing machine to gain 20% is Rs. 15750.**
