  1. .2 * 36,000 = 7,200 is the profit he would have had if sold at full price.
    36,000 - 7,200 = Base price
    Base price + profit = 33,600

    Can you take it from there?

  2. 120%=36000
    100%=?

    (100*36000)÷120
    =sh.30000

    P=33600-30000
    =sh.3600

    %p= p÷mp x 100
    =3600÷30000 x 100
    =12%
