Q:

If selling price is doubled, the profit triples. Find the profit percent ?

A) 100% B) 200%
C) 300% D) 400%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 100%

Explanation:

Let the C.P be Rs.100 and S.P be Rs.x, Then
The profit is (x-100)
Now the S.P is doubled, then the new S.P is 2x
New profit is (2x-100)
Now as per the given condition;
=> 3(x-100) = 2x-100
By solving, we get
x = 200
Then the Profit percent = (200-100)/100 = 100
Hence the profit percentage is 100%

Q:

What annual instalment will discharge a debt of Rs 1092 due in 3 years at 12% simple interest?

A) Rs.325 B) Rs.545
C) Rs.560 D) Rs.550
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs.325

Explanation:

Let each instalment be Rs.x .

 

1st year =  [x + (x * 12 * 2)/100] 

2nd year = [ x + (x *12 * 1)/100] 

3rd year = x 

Then, [x + (x * 12 * 2)/100] + [ x + (x *12 * 1)/100] + x =1092 

3x + ( 24x/100 ) + ( 12x/100 )  = 1092 

336x =109200

Therefore, x = 325 

Each instalment = Rs. 325
