A man sells a horse for Rs.1000 and loses something, if he had sold it for Rs.1090, his gain would have been double the former loss. Find the cost price of the horse?

## Answer/Solution

1030

### Steps/Work

CP = SP + 1CP = SP - g

1000 + x = 1090 - 2x

3x = 90 => x = 30

CP = 1000 + 30 = 1030

Answer: D

1000 + x = 1090 - 2x

3x = 90 => x = 30

CP = 1000 + 30 = 1030
