`Price of Saree was Rs.2000/-.`

As 25% profit = 600/-
which means sell price = 600 * 4 = 2400/-

So Cost of Saree = 2400-600 = 1800/-

Now,
Saree purchased at 10% discount = 2000*10% = 200/-,
Cost = 1800/-

And,
Saree sold at 20% more to its original price = 2000 * 20% = 400/-
So, Sales price = 2400/- answer Jun 30, 2014

Saree's price is Rs 2000 answer Jul 30, 2015
