Ans: 10%<br>Let the actual cost price of 1m of cloth be Rs.x<br>Effective C.P of 1 cm of cloth = x/110<br>S.P of 1 cm of cloth before discount= x/90<br>S.P of 1 cm of cloth after discount = (x/90) * 0.9 = x/100<br>Profit = x/100 - x/110= x/1100<br>Profit % = 100 * (x/1100)/(x/110) = 100 * 1/10 = 10%

Let the actual cost price of 1m of cloth be Rs.x Effective C.P of 1 cm of cloth = x/110 S.P of 1 cm of cloth before discount= x/90 S.P of 1 cm of cloth after discount = (x/90) * 0.9 = x/100 Profit = x/100 - x/110= x/1100 Profit % = 100 * (x/1100)/(x/110) = 100 * 1/10 = 10%
