**Reiny**, Saturday, August 27, 2011 at 8:01amlet 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 ??
