a an sold a bicycle for an amount which was greater by rs. 988 than half price he paid for it an made a profit of rs. 300 how much did he sell the bicycle for???

  • math - ,

    if he paid p for the bike,

    p/2 + 988 = p + 300
    p/2 = 688
    p = 1376

    so, he sold it for 1376/2 + 988 = 1676
    1676 - 1376 = 300

  • math - ,

    let purchase price be x
    selling price = (1/2)x + 988

    (1/2)x + 988 - x = 300
    (-1/2)x = -688
    x = 1376

    bought at 1376 , sold at 1676

    check:
    is (1/2)1376 + 988 = 1676 ? , YES!
