Q:

# Watson bought a book for Rs. 240 and sold to Johny at a profit  of 50%. Johny wants to sell this book to Shekar so that he earns a profit of 25%. But Shekar is adamant at buying this book at a discount of 10%. What marked price should Johny quote to Shekar so as to achieve desired profit ?

 A) Rs. 450 B) Rs. 360 C) Rs. 415 D) Rs. 500

Explanation:

Watson bought the book for Rs. 240 and sold to Johny at a profit of 50%.

S.P = C.P(1 + P%/100)

=> S.P for Watson = C.P for Johny = 240(1 + 50/100) = 240 x 1.5 = Rs. 360

Let Johny quoted the marked price of the book as Rs. M

We know, SP = M.P(1 - Discount(%)/100)

Here discount = 10% to Shekar,

S.P for Johny = M(1 - 10/100) = 0.9M

But Johny want to earn 25% profit,

=> S.P = C.P(1 + P%/100)

=> 0.9M = 360(1 + 25/100)

=> M = (360x1.25)/0.9

=> M = Rs. 500

Therefore, Johny should quote Rs. 500 as the marked price of the book to get 25% profit and allowing 10% discount to Shekar.
