The cost price of two articles is same. One article is sold at 29% profit and another at 11% loss. If the selling price of one article is Rs. 600 more than that of another, then find the selling price of article sold at loss.

Let the cost price of both the articles be Rs. x

According to the question,

1.29x – 0.89x = 600

=> x = 600/0.40 = 1335

Therefore, selling price of article sold at loss = 0.89x = Rs. 1335
