The cost price of a college bag is 240% more than the profit obtained on it selling at Rs. 1540. What is the cost price of that college bag?
Let the profit be Rs. p
Then Cost price of the bag = 340p/100 = 3.4p
According to question,
3.4p + p = 1540
4.4p = 1540
p = 1540/4.4
p = 350
The profit p = Rs, 350
Hence, The cost price of the bag = 3.4p = 3.4 x 350 = Rs. 1190.
While selling a router, a shopkeeper gives a discount of 15%. If he gives a discount of 20%, he earns Rs. 51 less as profit. What is the original marked price of the router?
Let the marked price of the router be Rs. P
From the given data,
P x 85100 - P x 80100 = 51P x 5100 = 51⇒ P = 51005 = 1020
Hence, the original marked price of the router is Rs. 1020.
A man buys a trouser in Rs.1250. By reduction of 20% in the price of trouser, he can purchase a t-shirt also in the same amount that was initially paid for the trouser. Find the price of the t-shirt?

A bottle is sold at a loss of 9%. Had it sold for Rs. 15 more, a profit of 25/2% would have gained. What is the cost price of the bottle (approx)?
Let the cost price of the bottle = Rs. 100
Selling price of the bottle = Rs. 100 - Rs. 9 = Rs. 91
Then, from the given data,
=> 112 (1/2) - 91 = 15
=> 21 (1/2) = 15
=> 43 = 15
Then 100 = ?
1500/43 = 34.885 =~ 35
Hence, the cost price of the bottle = Rs. 35
Selling price of a cellphone is increased by 20%. For this sale is decreased by 30%. Find the effect of total sales?
Let cost of each cell phone = Rs.100 & Sale = 100 phones.
Money receipt = Rs.(100 x 100) = Rs.10,000
New cost per cellphone = Rs.120 and New sale = 70 phones

'X' sells fruits at 21% profit. If X bought it for 9% less and sold it for Rs.29 less, he would have gained 25%. The cost price of fruits is?
Let the cost price of the fruits be 'C.P'

(121% of C.P) - (125% of 91% of C.P) = 29
121100 C.P - 125100 x 91100 x C.P = 29121100 - 125 x 91100 x 100 C.P = 29(12100 - 125 x 91) C.P = 290000(12100 - 11375) C.P = 290000725 C.P = 290000C.P = 400
