  11. let cp of one article=x
    then cp of 200 article=200x

    30% article=(200x)*30%=60x
    now according to question

    solve for x

  12. let CP of 1 art = 100%
    total CP = 100%*200 = 20000%

    total SP = 200*30/100 * 120% + 140*110%
    = 7200% + 15400%
    = 22600%
    profit = SP-CP
    2600 = 22600% – 20000%
    2600 = 2600%
    1 = 1%
    100% =100rs
