Choose the correct option.

The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25%, then the value of x is:

A15

B16

C18

D25

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

Explanation:

Let C.P. of each article be Re. 1 C.P. of x articles = Rs. x.

S.P. of x articles = Rs. 20.

Profit = Rs. (20 - x).
So {(20 - x) / x} x 100 = 25
x = 16.

Choose the correct option.

In a certain store, the profit is 320% of the cost. If the cost increases by 25% but the selling price remains constant, approximately what percentage of the selling price is the profit?

A30%

B70%

C100%

D250%

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

Explanation:

Let C.P.= Rs. 100. Then, Profit = Rs. 320, S.P. = Rs. 420.

New C.P. = 125% of Rs. 100 = Rs. 125

New S.P. = Rs. 420.

Profit = Rs. (420 - 125) = Rs. 295.

Required percentage = (295/450)x 100% =70% (approximately).

Some articles were bought at 6 articles for Rs. 5 and sold at 5 articles for Rs. 6. Gain percent is:

A30%

B331/3%

C35%

D44%

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

Explanation:

Suppose, number of articles bought = L.C.M. of 6 and 5 = 30.

C.P. of 30 articles = Rs. (5/6)x 30= Rs. 25.

S.P. of 30 articles = Rs. (6/5)x 30= Rs. 36.

Gain % =(11/25)x 100% = 44%.
