10%18%11%15%8%Option D

CP of bike = 75400

maintenance cost = 2600

total cost price of Bike = 75400 + 2600 = 78000

profit = 89700 – 78000 = 11700

profit percentage = 11700/78000 * 100 = 15% - Ayush made a loss of 10% on selling a cycle. If he would have made a profit of 40%. In what price he would sell so that he can get 22% profit ?
15201840248018302240Option D

Let CP of cycle = 100x

loss = 10%

SP of cycle = 100x * 90/100 = 90x

If he sold 750 more, he would have 40% profit

SP = 100x * 140/100 = 140x

90x + 750 = 140x

50x = 750

x = 15

CP = 100x = 1500

SP = 1500 * 122/100 = 1830 - Marked price of an article is 45% above its cost price and by giving 20% discount on marked price he earned rs.128 as profit. What is profit percent incurred when he sells same article rs.72 more than its selling price.
22%28%34%25%12%Option D

Let CP of article = 100x

MP of article = 100x * 145/100 = 145x

SP of article = 145x * 4/5 = 116x

profit = rs.128

116 x – 100x = 16x

16x = 128

x = 8

CP = 800

SP = 928

When he sells rs.72 more than its SP,

SP = 928 + 72 = 1000

Profit % = 1000 – 800/800 * 100 = 25% - Rohit purchased a mobile rs.4500 and sold it at 20% loss to Reema. Which amount he got from Reema, he purchased a TV and sold it at a profit of 25%. How much amount of overall profit or loss made by him in whole transactions ?

MP of article = 160x

SP of article = 160x * 85/100 * 90/100 = 122.4x

122.4x = 2448

x = 2448/122.4 = 20

CP = 100x = 2000 - A man buys 40 mangoes at rs. 5 each and 60 oranges at rs.4 each. 10% of the mangoes and oranges are rotted. The man sells the remaining mangoes at rs. 7 each and oranges at rs 3 each. Find the overall gain or loss percentage ?
8% profit10% loss22% loss65/11% loss14%Option D

Total CP of 40 mangoes = 40 * 5 = 200

Total CP of 60 mangoes = 60 * 4 = 240

10% of mangoes and oranges are rotted

remaining mangoes = 40 * 90/100 = 36

and oranges = 60 * 90/100 = 54

total SP of oranges = 54 * 3 = 162

total SP = 252 + 162 = 414

loss % = 440 – 414 /440 * 100 = 65/11% - A shopkeeper sold a product at 20% discount and profit earned on that product is 16.67%. If the marked price of that product is rs.875, then what is the cost price of that product ?
820340680600485Option D

MP of the product = 875

SP of product = 875 * 4/5 = 700

profit = 16.67% = 1/6

let CP = 6x

profit = x

SP = 7x

7x = 700

x = 100

CP = 6x = 600 - A dishonest shopkeeper sold rice at cost price. The 1kg weight of rice that he uses actually weight of 780 gm. How much percentage profit does he earned on the sale of 1kg price ?
200/6%120/7%18%1100/39%204/5%Option D

Actual weight = 1kg

false weight = 780 gm

profit = 100 – 780 = 220

profit % = 220/780 * 100 = 1100/39% - Sekhar sells two products A and B have equal cost price. Product A is sold at 30% profit and product b is sold at an amount of 15% less than the selling price of product A. If the total profit is rs.162, then what is cost price of B ?
480400525340260Option B

Let CP of the product A = x

SP of product A = x * 130/100 = 13x/10

SP of product B = 13x /10 * 17/20 = 221x/200

profit of product A = 13x/10 – x = 3x /10

profit of product B = 221x/200 = 21x/200

3x/10 + 21x/200 = 162

60x + 21x / 200 = 162

x = 400 - An article is sold at a profit of 15%. If it had been sold at a profit of 22%, it would have fetched rs. 340 more. What is the cost price of article ?
25003240145020004420Option D

Let CP of the article = 100x

SP of the article = 100x * 115/100

when it sold at 22% profit

SP = 100 * 122/100 = 122x

122x – 115x = 7x

7x = 340

x = 20

CP of the product = 100x = 100 * 20 = 2000
