**Given :**

Bashir bought an article for Rs 1215 and spent Rs 35 on its transportation.

**To find :**

We have to find the price he should sell the article to have a gain of 16%.

**Solution :**

Cost price of the article $= Rs. (1215+35) = Rs. 1250$.

Let the selling price be SP.

Therefore,

$SP = CP + Profit$

$SP = 1250+ \frac{16}{100} \times 1250$

$= 1250+16\times12.5$

$= 1250+200$

$= Rs. 1450$.

**He should sell the article at Rs. 1450 to have a gain of 16%.**
