Choose the correct option.

A shopkeeper marked a suit at Rs.400. He sold it after allowing a discount, and still made at a profit of 25%. At what percentage above its cost price did he marked the suit, if he sold it for Rs.320?

A50%

B66.67%

C62.50%

D56.25%

Explanation:

Solution: There are two selling prices equation equating them we will get the answer.

S.P on obtaining profit= S.P. on getting discount  ( let the C.P BE x)

125x/100 = 80/100 * 400

solving the equation we get x= 256 Rs that is the cost price. So Marked Price was 400

Therefore (400-256)/256 *100%  =56.25%

Choose the correct option.

Radha bought a watch for Rs. 144 and got a percentage of profit equal to the cost price of the watch. What is the cost price of the watch?

ARs. 72

BRs. 80

CRs. 78

DRs. 90

Explanation:

SP=144
Lets assume cost price of watch= Rs. x
so profit %=x
C.P.= (100/(100+gain%))*S.P. -----(formula to get CP)
x=(100/100+x) *144
=> x^2+100x=14400
=> x^2+180x-80x-14400=0
=> (x+180) (x-80)=0
=> x=-180
=> x=80

ARs. 2140

BRs. 2240

CRs. 3000

DRs. 2500

Explanation:

Lets assume cost of table is X and cost of chair is Y.
sold price is 20000 and profit is 750 .
so cost for both is 19250.
=> 5X+10Y=19250 ------------ (1)

=> 5*(115/100)X + 10* (90/100)Y =20000 ------- (2)

By solving both eq.
We get X=2140

Choose the correct option.

A quantity of tea is sold at Rs. 5.75 per kilogram. The total gain by selling the tea at this rate is Rs. 60. Find the quantity of tea being sold if a profit of 15% is made on the deal.

A90 kg

B60 kg

C80 kg

D70 kg

Explanation:

Say total cost price of tea is x.

Then total profit at a rate of 15% is = (15x/100)

According to question,

15x/100 = 60

so x = 400

C.p of the tea is Rs. 400.

so total selling price will be = (400 60) = Rs.460

so the quantity of the tea will be = (460/5.75) = 80kg.

A man buys an article for Rs. 27.50 and sells it for Rs. 28.60. Find his gain percent.

A4%

B8%

C10%

D6%

If the cost price of 20 articles is equal to the selling price of 16 articles, What is the percentage of profit or loss that the merchant makes?

A15% Profit

B25% Loss

C25% Profit

D15% Loss

Explanation:

Let Cost price of 1 article be Re.1.
Therefore, Cost price of 20 articles = Rs. 20.
Selling price of 16 articles = Rs. 20
Therefore, Selling price of 20 articles = (20/16) * 20 = 25
Profit = Selling price - Cost price
= 25 - 20 = 5
Percentage of profit = Profit / Cost price * 100.
= 5 / 20 * 100 = 25% Profit

ARs. 55.

BRs. 50.

CRs. 45.

DRs. 35.

Explanation:

Let the C.P = Rs.x.
1st S.P =125% of Rs.x.= 125*x/100= 5x/4.
2nd C.P=80% of x. = 80x/100 =4x/5.
2nd S.P =130% of 4x/5. = (130/100* 4x/5) = 26x/25.
So, 5x/4-26x/25 = 10.50 or x = 10.50*100/21=50.
=> C.P = Rs. 50.
