b.180

    let the cost price be x
    then the selling price is .9x
    if he had taken 45 more ----> .9x + 45
    this would have been 1.08 of cost price

    1.08 = .9x + 45
    ....
    x = 250

    check: at 10% loss, SP = 225
    but had he taken 45 more, SP = 270
    and what is 108% of 250 ??

    270
