53. Cost of an item is x. It's value increases by p% and decreases by p% Now the new value is 1 rupee, what is the actual value ?

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Given cost of an item = Rs. X

Item cost by increasing p% will be = x(100+p)/100

After p% decrement, value = {x+(xp/100)}-[{x+(xp/100)}p/100]

= [x+(xp/100)] [1-(p/100)]

= x[1+(p/100)][1-(p/100)]

Givne new value is 1

x[1-((p^2)/10000)] = 1

x = 1/[1-((p^2)/10000)] = 10000/[10000-(p^2)]

55. A man traveled from the village to the post-office at the rate of 25 kmph and walked back at the rate of 4 kmph. If the whole journey took 5 hours 48 minutes, find the distance of the post-office from the village.

**Answer:**** Option D **

**Explanation:**

Average speed = (2*a*b)/(a + b) here a = 25 b = 4

Average speed = 2*25 * 4/(25 + 4) = 200/29 kmph.

Distance covered in 5 hours 48 minutes = Speed * time

Distance = (200/29)*(29/5) = 40 kms

Distance covered in 5 hours 48 minutes = 40 kms

Distance of the post office from the village = (40/2) =20 km.

and profit earned by the third seller= x%.

Then, ( 100 +x )% of 125% of 120% of P = 165% of p

=> [ ( 100+x )/100*125/100*120/100* P ] = [ 165/100* P ]

=> ( 100 + X ) = (165*100*100)/(125*120) = 110,

=> X = 10%.
