Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 2145

Given: 

The article be sold to make 30% profit

Profit earned by selling an article for Rs. 2200 = Percentage loss by selling same article Rs. 1100

Formula used:

Percentage profit = [(selling price – cost price)/cost price] × 100

Calculation:

Let C.P. be Rs. X

Then,   [(2200 – X)/X] x 100 = [(X – 1100)/X] × 100

 ⇒ 2200 - X = X- 1100

 ⇒ 2x = 3300

 ⇒ x = 1650

Required S.P. = 130% of Rs. 1650

⇒ (130/100) x 1650               

 ⇒ 2145

∴ The price of article is 2145.
