2% gain so Sold at 600+2% of 600

600 + ((2/100)*600)
600+12=612
Now rate of int. will be calculated with formula
S.I. = P*T*R/100
Here S.I.=650.25-612=38.25
P=612,
T=9/12=3/4
applying formula we get

R=25/3 %

I think P should be 600 as you take money only to buy item which is 600, so
38.25=600*.75*R/100

or R = 8.5
rate of interest has to be calculated on the total money which is 600 + 2% gain ...
