A milkman bought 15 kg of milk and mixed 3 kg of water in it. If the price per kg of the mixture becomes Rs. 22, what is cost price of the milk per kg?

ARs. 28.00

BRs. 26.40

CRs. 24.00

DRs. 22.60

Explanation:

Cost of 1 kg of mixture = Rs. 22
Cost of (15 + 3) kg of mixture = (18 * Rs 22) = Rs. 396
As water is free so Rs. 396 is the actual cost of 15 kg of milk
so cost of 1 kg of milk = (396 /15) = Rs. 26.40

Choose the correct option.

The cost of two articles are in the ratio 3 : 5. If there is 30% loss on the first article and 20% gain on the second article, what is overall percentage of loss or gain?

Aa gain 2.25%

Ba loss 1.25%

Ca loss 2%

Da loss 2.25%

ENone of these

Explanation:

1st Article
--------------
CP = Rs. 3;
Loss of 30% so Loss = 3 x 30/100 = 0.9
SP = Rs. 2.1
2nd Article
--------------
CP = Rs. 5;
gain of 20% so Gain = 5 x 20/100 = 1
SP = Rs. 6

Total CP = Rs.(3 + 5) = Rs. 8
Total SP = Rs.(2.1 + 6) = Rs. 8.1
CP < SP so He is making gain .
Gain = Rs. (8.1 - 8) = Rs. 0.1

Gain % = (0.1 x 100)/8 = 10/8 = 1.25%

Choose the correct option.

A person bought 8 quintal of rice for certain rupees. He sold 3 quintal of rice at 10% profit. After a week, he sold 3 quintal of rice with neither profit nor loss and 2 quintal at 5% loss. In this transaction, what is the profit?

A10%

B20%

C25%

D2.50%

ENone of these

Explanation:

Let's assume cost price for 1 Quintal = Rs.100
Total CP = Rs. 8 x 100 = Rs. 800
SP of first 3 kg = Rs. 3 x 110 = Rs. 330
SP of next 3 kg = Rs. 3 x 100 = Rs. 300
SP of 2 kg = Rs. 2 x 95 = Rs. 190
Total SP = Rs. 820
Profit = Rs. 20
Profit% = (20/800) * 100% = 2.5%

A person sold an article for Rs. 136 and made a loss of 15%. If he sold it for Rs. x, he would have made a profit of 15%. Which one of the following is correct?

A190 < x < 200

B180 < x < 190

C170 < x < 180

D160 < x < 170

Explanation:

CP = (100 x 136)/85 = 160
Now new SP at 15% profit = (160 x 115)/100 = 184
Clearly, 180 < x < 190

On selling an article for Rs. 240, a trader loses 4 %. In order to gain 10 %, he must sell the article for

ARs. 275

BRs. 280

CRs. 285

DRs. 300

Explanation:

? 96 % of C.P. = Rs. 240
? C.P. = (240 x 100)/96 = Rs. 250

A man bought a number of oranges at 3 for a rupee and an equal number at 2 for a rupee. At what price per dozen, should he sell all to make a profit of 20 %?

ARs. 4

BRs. 5

CRs. 7

DRs. 6

Explanation:

If 3 Orange for a rupee
so 12 Orange (1 dozen) for Rs. 4 => Rs. 4 per dozen
If 2 Orange for a rupee
so 12 Orange (1 dozen) for Rs. 6 => Rs. 6 per dozen

Cost price for 2 dozens = Rs. 10 or Rs. 5 per dozen
? To gain 20% = (120 x 5)/100 = Rs. 6 per dozen.
so he must sell them for Rs. 6 per dozen to gain 20% .

SP = CP[(100 + profit%)/100]
= 135 * [(100 + 40)/100] = Rs. 189.
