Profit loss or quantitative aptitude problem

At what percent above the cost price must an articles be marked so ás to gain $17$% after allowing a discount of $10$% ?

Take costprice as $x$, then discounted amount will be $\frac{15x}{100}$. Take on from here. –  user63477 Mar 17 at 8:16

let $x$ be the cost price.

Amount after discounting =$\frac{85x}{100}$

he made a $15$% profit ,therefore,

$\frac{115.85x}{100.100}=5865$

You get $x=6,000$. Now calculate the second part yourself.
