I will be very greatful to you if you help me to solve the below problem:

A man purchased goods Rs.880.He sold one-fourth of the goods at 15%loss.At what percent gain should the remaining be sold to gain 5% on the whole?

I had done the above problem like this:

C.P=Rs 880
C.P of 1/4th of the goods
=1/4*880=Rs 220
=Rs 231

Therefore he should sell it at Rs 231 to gain 5% profit.
