- If the cost price of P and T is equal to Rs 800 each. Find the difference in their Market Prices.

A) Rs 15

B) Rs 25

C) Rs 17

D) Rs 20

E) Rs 24

View Answer

** Option D**

Solution:

P => Profit% = 30% = 3/10 [CP = 10, SP = 10+3 = 13]

Discount = 20% = 1/5 [MP = 5, SP = 5-1 = 4]

Make SP same

CP : SP : MP is

40 : 52 : 65 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(1)

Now T =>Profit% = 40% = 4/10 [CP = 10, SP = 10+4 = 14]

Discount = 12.5% = 1/7 [MP = 8, SP = 8-1 = 7]

Make SP same

CP : SP : MP is

10 : 14 : 16â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦.(2)

Make CP of P and T same by multiplying eq. (2) by 4, gives

CP : SP : MP is

40 : 56 : 64

So 40 = 800 [as given in question]

=> 1 = 20

Difference in MP = 65-64 = 1, so => 1 = 20 is answer

- If the market price of S is 200% of market price of R, then find the selling price of R, if market price of S is Rs 3600.

A) Rs 1200

B) Rs 1300

C) Rs 1150

D) Rs 1400

E) Rs 1050

View Answer

** Option A**

Solution:

For S:

CPâ€¦.SPâ€¦..MP is 4â€¦â€¦..5â€¦â€¦â€¦6 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦..(1)

For R:

CPâ€¦.SPâ€¦..MP is 5â€¦â€¦..6â€¦â€¦â€¦9 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(2)

Mp of S is 200% of R

200% of 9 = 18

Multiply eq. (1) by 3

CPâ€¦â€¦â€¦SPâ€¦â€¦â€¦MP is 12â€¦â€¦15â€¦â€¦â€¦..18

Now 18 = 3600

1 = 200

6 = 1200 – Answer

- Find the ratio of selling price of S and R if the cost price of both is same.

A) 24 : 29

B) 23 : 22

C) 25 : 24

D) 23 : 20

E) 23 : 25

View Answer

** Option C**

Solution:

For S:

CPâ€¦..SPâ€¦..MP is 4 â€¦â€¦..5â€¦â€¦â€¦.6 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(1)

For R:

CPâ€¦..SPâ€¦..MP is 5 â€¦â€¦..6â€¦â€¦â€¦.9 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(2)

Multiply eq. (1) by 5 and (2) by 4

(1) gives.,, 20â€¦â€¦â€¦..25â€¦â€¦â€¦..30

(2) gives,, 20â€¦â€¦â€¦..24â€¦..â€¦…36

SP of S : R is 25 : 24

- Find the selling price of Q if the ratio of market price of Q and S is 5 : 1 and the cost price of S is Rs 4000.

A) Rs 15,000

B) Rs 21,000

C) Rs 18,000

D) Rs 23,000

E) Rs 14,000

View Answer

** Option B**

Solution:

For S:

CPâ€¦..SPâ€¦..MP is 4 â€¦â€¦..5â€¦â€¦â€¦.6 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(1)

For Q:

CPâ€¦..SPâ€¦..MP is 14 â€¦â€¦..21â€¦â€¦â€¦.30 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(2)

Here already ratio of MP of Q : S is 5 : 1

So,

4 == 4000

1 == 1000

SP of Q = 21 == 21000

- If the cost price of R and P is same, then find how much % the selling price of P is more or less than that of R.

A) 10 2/3%

B) 9 1/4%

C) 5 2/5%

D) 8 1/3%

E) None of these

View Answer

** Option D**

Solution:

For R:

CPâ€¦..SPâ€¦..MP is 5 â€¦â€¦..6â€¦â€¦â€¦.9 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(1)

For P:

CPâ€¦..SPâ€¦..MP is 40 â€¦â€¦..52â€¦â€¦â€¦.66 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(2)

To make CP same, multiply (1) by 8

(1) gives CPâ€¦..SPâ€¦..MP is 40 â€¦â€¦..48â€¦â€¦â€¦.72

SP of P is 4 more than that of R

So 4/28 * 100 = 8 1/3% more

**Directions (6 – 10): Study the following pie-charts carefully and answer the questions that follow:**

- If the incomes of company A and B are in the ratio 2 : 3 and the income of company B is 120% of its expenditure, then what is the difference between the income of company B and the income of company A?

A) Rs 50 lakh

B) Rs 40 lakh

C) Rs 60 lakh

D) Rs 55 lakh

E) None of these

View Answer

** Option B**

Solution:

Expenditure of Company B = 100 lakh

Income of Company B = 120/100 * 100 lakh = 120 lakh

Income of Company A = 2/3 * 120 lakh = 80 lakh

Required difference = 120 â€“ 80 = 40 lakh

- If the number of employees in Company A is 1120 then what is the average salary of the employees in Company A?

A) Rs 4500

B) Rs 4000

C) Rs 2500

D) Rs 2000

E) Rs 3000

View Answer

** Option D**

Solution:

Total expenditure on the employees of company A = 28/100 * 80 lakh = 22.4 lakh

So average salary of employees = 2240000/1120 = Rs 2000

- What is the ratio of tax paid by Company A to that by Company B ?

A) 30 : 13

B) 28 : 15

C) 25 : 11

D) 27 : 11

E) 30 : 17

View Answer

** Option B**

Solution:

The required ratio is

14/100 * 80 lakh : 6/100 * 100 lakh = 28 : 15

- What is the difference between the expenditure on employees of Company B and that of Company A?

A) Rs 116000

B) Rs 116 lakh

C) Rs 123 lakh

D) Rs 11.6 lakh

E) Rs 12.3 lakh

View Answer

** Option D**

Solution:

Required difference = 34/100 * 100 lakh â€“ 28/100 * 80 lakh = 11.6 lakh

- The expenditure on Machinery of Company B is what per cent more than that on the same item of Company A?

A) 86.5%

B) 83.5%

C) 87.5%

D) 85.5%

E) 82.5%

View Answer

** Option C**

Solution:

Expenditure on Machinery of Company B = 18/100 100 lakh = 18 lakh

Expenditure on Machinery of Company A = 12/100 * 80 lakh = 9.6 lakh

So Required % = (18 lakh â€“ 9.6 lakh)/9.6 lakh * 100 = 87.5%

Thnk u mam 6-10 done..but 1st di samaj me nhi aya..diagram me p,q,r,s mention nhi kiya..

mam cp:sp:mp = 40:52:65 kese hua

We have to make SP same. Multiply eq 1 by 4 and eq 2 by 13.

So CP from 1 is 10Ã—4

SP is 4Ã—13 or 13Ã—4.

And MP from eq. 2 is 5Ã—13

10/10

ThnXXX

thanX ðŸ™‚

ty.

mam ratio smj ni aaya sp mp cp kaaaa….:(

In which q ??

U have to multiply to get CP same. Or SP same. As required

Mam… But ratio kaise aa rha h…means jo prcnt vlu h usko ratio mn cnvrt ki… ? I didn’t get that method mam… ? ðŸ™‚

Hehe. Ok ok

See discount% – discount/MP se ata hai.

So agar discount % = 1/5

To 5 MP ho gai and 1 discount ho gya.

Next SP = MP – discount to 5 – 1 = 4.

Same profit % ya loss% k case me hoga

Yaa mam… I thought that process first mam…But then no need of given values…. ????

P => Profit% = 30% = 3/10 [CP = 10, SP = 10+3 = 13]

Discount = 20% = 1/5 [MP = 5, SP = 5-1 = 4]

Make SP same

CP : SP : MP is

40 : 52 : 65 â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦(1)

this step mp isme uper niche dono pe multiply kia h mam…:)

SP same karni hai na.

To dono me karna pdega.

Like linear equations solve karte hai na

Coefficients same bna k

mam tb to aur b easy ho gya becoz fr values jo di h uski use nhi krni padegi becoz percent values se sbi k ans aa jasyega…:)

Yes

mam 1 question there i hav doubt in that…:)

Yes?

mam…..plz provide some di set regarding mains….:))))

Sir/mam,

I can’t understand in problem no 4, why MP of S is 6 & MP of Q is 30.
