A) 72 kgs | B) 80 kgs |

C) 76 kgs | D) 84 kgs |

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) 3.27 % loss | B) 4.15 % loss |

C) 3.27 % gain | D) 4.15 % gain |

Explanation:

Let cp= 100,

35 % increase in sp=135

10 % discount in 135((135*10)/100)=13.5

so 1st sp=(135-13.5)=121.5, again 15 % discount in 1st sp((121.5*15)/100)=18.225

2nd sp=(121.5-18.225)=103.275,

so finally cp=100,sp=103.275 ,gain by 3.27%

A) Rs. 404.80 | B) Rs. 536.80 |

C) Rs.440 | D) Rs. 160 |

Explanation:

Let C1 be the cost price of the first article and C2 be the cost price of the second article.

Let the first article be sold at a profit of 22%, while the second one be sold at a loss of 8%.

We know, C1 + C2 = 600.

The first article was sold at a profit of 22%. Therefore, the selling price of the first article = C1 + (22/100)C1 = 1.22C1

The second article was sold at a loss of 8%. Therefore, the selling price of the second article = C2 - (8/100)C2 = 0.92C2.

The total selling price of the first and second article = 1.22C1 + 0.92C2.

As the merchant did not make any profit or loss in the entire transaction, his combined selling price of article 1 and 2 is the same as the cost price of article 1 and 2.

Therefore, 1.22C1 + 0.92C2 = C1+C2 = 600

As C1 + C2 = 600, C2 = 600 - C1. Substituting this in 1.22C1 + 0.92C2 = 600, we get

1.22C1 + 0.92(600 - C1) = 600

or 1.22C1 - 0.92C1 = 600 - 0.92*600

or 0.3C1 = 0.08*600 = 48

or C1 = 48/(0.3) = 160.

If C1 = 160, then C2 = 600 - 160 = 440.

The item that is sold at loss is article 2. The selling price of article 2 = 0.92*C2 = 0.92*440 = 404.80.

A) Rs. 185 | B) Rs. 154 |

C) Rs. 200 | D) Rs. 177 |

Explanation:

Let the C.P be 'x'

Then, the selling price S.P = x - 16x/100

= 84x/100 = 21x/25

Now, if the S.P is 60 more, then the profit is 14%

=> 21x/25 + 60 = x + 14x/100

=> 114x/100 - 21x/25 = 60

=> (57 - 42)x/50 = 60

=> 15x/50 = 60

x = 3000/15 = 200

Therefore, the Cost price C.P = x = Rs. 200

A) 60% | B) 50% |

C) 70% | D) 45% |

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 = (295/420) * 100

= 70%(approx)
