From the question, it is given that,

A bicycle is purchased for ₹ 1800

Bicycle is sold at a profit of 12%.

We know that, Profit percent = (Profit/CP) × 100

12 = (Profit/₹ 1800) × 100

(12 × 1800)/100 = Profit

Profit = 12 × 18

Profit = ₹ 216

Then, Profit = SP – CP

216 = SP – 1800

SP = 216 + 1800

SP = ₹ 2016
