Let cost price be $100

Profit = 30% of $100

  = 30/100 × $100

  = $30

And selling price = $100 + $30 = $130; [we know, selling price = cost price + profit]

When selling price = $130, cost price = $100

When selling price = $1, cost price = $100/130

And, when selling price = $35620, cost price = $100/130 × 35620

Therefore, the cost price = $27400

Best of Luck
