A man purchased a watch for Rs.400 and sold it at a gain of 20% of the selling price. The selling price of the watch is:

ARs. 500

BRs. 460

CRs. 480

DRs. 440

Explanation:

Given Cost price of watch = 400
and Gain% = 20% of SP
20%of SP = SP - CP
CP = SP(1-20/100)
=> CP = SP*4/5
=> SP = CP * 5/4
=>SP = 400*5/4
=> SP = Rs. 500

NOTE:
If the question if it would have given like"purchased for Rs. 400 and sold it at a gain of 20% of the Cost price ?"
Then
Given Cost price of watch = 400
and Gain% = 20%
Gain = 400 * 20/100 = 80
Cost price = (400 + 80) = 480

As in this questions it has given "purchased for Rs. 400 and sold it at a gain of 20% of the Selling price ?"
