Ram sell his goods 25% cheaper than Shyam and 25% dearer than Bram. How much % is Bram's good cheaper than Shyam ?

A) 60% B) 40%
C) 50% D) 30%

Answer:   B) 40%



Explanation:

Lets say shyam sells at 100,

 

Since Ram sells 25% cheaper than Shyam,

 

Therefor Ram sells at less than 25% of100 or 75 rs.

 

Ram sells 25% dearer than Bram or 125% of Ram =100% of Bram or

 

125% of x (say x price of bram )=75rs.
or 100% of x =60rs.
hence price of bram is 60rs.

 

now Bram's good is cheaper than Shyam's as (100-60)x100/100% or 40%.

 

Hence Brams Good is 40% cheaper than that of Shyam's good.
