we can also find the cost price with help of this formula.

formula :-

                   S.P = C.P ( 1 + r )                        

sp = selling price

cp = cost price

r = rate or percent

then solve it

2100 = C.P (1 +  25/100)

2100 = CP (1 + 0.25)

2100 = CP (1.25)

divide 1.25 on both sides

 2100/1.25 = CP (1.25)/(1.25)

we get 

Cost Price = Rs. 1680
