If you want to add new page in the business application, very first you need to add Silverlight page in the View Folder. I have added a Silverlight page named MyLearning.xaml in the View folder as below,

After adding page you need to add link on the MainPage.xaml to navigate to this page from home page. For that open MainPage.xaml and inside URI mapper add a mapping for MyLearning.xaml.
