We have,
Sp of the washing m/c = Rs 13,500
Loss(%) = 20%
CP = ?

We know that,
$SP = CP (1-\frac{Loss}{100})$
Putting the values in the above equation we get;

$\\13,500= CP (1-\frac{20}{100})\\ 13500 = CP (1-\frac{1}{5}) = CP \times (\frac{4}{5})$
Therefore,
$CP = 13,500\times \frac{5}{4} = Rs\ 16875$
