Loss%=[(Common Loss and Gain%)/10]^2 = (x/10)^2

Loss % = (5/10)^2= 0.5^2= 0.25

Two lots of Mango with equal quantity, one costing Rs. 10 per kg and the other costing Rs. 15 per kg, are mixed together and whole lot is sold at Rs. 15 per kg. What is the profit or loss?

A10% loss

B10% profit

C20% profit

D20% loss

| | Important Formulas | Topic: | Asked In HireMee |

Explanation:

Cost Price of 1 kg mango @ Rs. 10 per kg
and Cost of 1 kg Mango @ Rs. 15 per kg = 10 + 15 = Rs. 25 (Cost Price for 2 Kg)
Selling Price for 2 kg = 2 x Rs. 15 = Rs. 30
Here CP < SP
So Profit = (Rs. 30 - Rs. 25) = Rs. 5
Formula Used: Profit% = (profit/CP)*100
Profit % = (5/25) * 100% = 20%

ARs. 3000 Rs. 2520 5%

BRs. 4000 Rs. 3520 6%

CRs. 5000 RS. 6250 7%

DNone of these

| | Important Formulas | Topic: | Asked In iGateHireMee |

Explanation:

CP = 2400
Let MP = x
So, MP = x * 80/100 = 2400
MP = x = 3000
SP = 3000 * 16/100 = 480+3000 = 2520
Profit = 2520 - 2400 = 120
Profit% = 120*100/2400 = 5

Alfred buys an old scooter for Rs. 4700 and spends Rs. 800 on its repairs. If he sells the scooter for Rs. 5800, his gain percent is:

A44/7 %

B55/11%

C10%

Selling Price (S.P.) = Rs. 5800.

Gain = (S.P.) - (C.P.) = Rs.(5800 - 5500) = Rs. 300.

Gain % = (300/5500)x 100% =$$5 \frac{5}{11}$$%

ANo profit, no loss

B5%

S.P. of 56 kg rice = Rs. (56 x 30) = Rs. 1680.
Gain = (80/1600 )x 100 % = 5%.
