a dealer gets Rs 470 more if instead of selling a table at a loss of 10% , it is sold at a gain of 10%. Find the cost price of the table.

Suppose the C.P be 'Z' then in case of loss = Z- (10% of Z)=9Z / 10,

Now, In case of Profit = Z+(10% of Z) = 11Z/10----The difference between Profit and Loss --- P- L=470 i.e. (11Z/10)-(9Z/10)=470

So we can write (2Z / 10)=470,----thus, Z=(470*10) / 2 = 2350 The C.P
