    A man bought two goats for Rs. 1008. He sold one at a loss of 20% and other at a profit of 44%. If each goat was sold for the same price, the cost price of a goat, which was sold at loss, was

    A) Rs. 648

    B) Rs. 360    

    C) Rs. 568 

    D) Rs. 440    

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    Let the cost price of one goat = Rs. x \[\therefore \] Cost price of second goat \[=Rs.(100-x)\] According to question,             \[\frac{x\times 80}{100}-\frac{(1008-x)144}{100}\] \[\Rightarrow \]   \[5x=9072-9x\] \[\Rightarrow \]   \[x=\frac{9072}{14}=648\] \[\therefore \] Cost price of the goat which is sold at loss = Rs. 648
