(i) It is given that

The dealer allows a discount of 20%

S.P. = [1 – d/100] of M.P.

Substituting the values

360 = [1 – 20/100] of M.P.

By further calculation

360 = 80/100 of M.P.

It can be written as

M.P. = 360 × 100/80

M.P. = 360 × 10/8

So we get

M.P. = 45 × 10

M.P. = ₹ 450

(ii) Consider ₹ x as the C.P. of the article

Profit = 20%

S.P. = ₹ 360

We know that

S.P. = [1 + P/100] of C.P.

Substituting the values

360 = [1 + 20/100] of x

By further calculation

360 = [1 + 1/5] of x

So we get

360 = 6x/5

By cross multiplication

x = 360 × 5/6

x = 60 × 5

x = ₹ 300

Therefore, the C.P. of the article is ₹ 300.
