# Suneel bought a scooter for a certain sum of money. He spent 10% of the cost on repairs and sold the scooter for a profit of Rs. 1100. How much did he spend on repairs if he made a profit of 20% ?

$\par&space;Let&space;the&space;C.P.&space;be&space;Rs.&space;x.&space;Then,&space;20\%&space;of&space;x&space;=$ $\par&space;1100$

$\frac{20}{100}&space;\times&space;x$ $\par&space;=&space;1100$

$\par&space;x&space;=&space;5500$

$\par&space;C.P.&space;=&space;5500,$ $\par&space;Expenditures&space;on&space;repairs&space;=&space;10\%$

$\par&space;Actual&space;price&space;=&space;Rs.$ $\left(\frac{100}{110}\times&space;5500\right)&space;=$ $\par&space;Rs.&space;5000$

$\par&space;Expenditure&space;on&space;repairs&space;=&space;Rs.&space;(5500&space;-&space;5000)&space;=&space;Rs.&space;500$
