23440
23678
46620
45780

Option C
Total Jeans = 720
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3
J1 type Jeans = 720 * 4/12 = 240
J2 type Jeans = 720 * 5/12 = 300
J3 type Jeans = 720 * 3/12 = 180
On the 1st month:
Total Jeans sold = 720 * 10/100 = 72
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3
J1 type Jeans = 72 * 4/12 = 24
J2 type Jeans = 72 * 5/12 = 30
J3 type Jeans = 72 * 3/12 = 18
On the 2nd month:
Total Jeans sold = 720 * 40/300 = 96
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3
J1 type Jeans = 96 * 4/12 = 32
J2 type Jeans = 96 * 5/12 = 40
J3 type Jeans = 96 * 3/12 = 24
On the 3rd month:
Total Jeans sold = 720 * 35/300 = 84
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3
J1 type Jeans = 84 * 4/12 = 28
J2 type Jeans = 84 * 5/12 = 35
J3 type Jeans = 84 * 3/12 = 21
On the 4th month:
Total Jeans sold = 720 * 20/100 = 144

J1 type Jeans = 144 * 4/12 = 48
J2 type Jeans = 144 * 5/12 = 60
J3 type Jeans = 144 * 3/12 = 36
On the 5th month:
Total Jeans sold = 720 * 100/300 = 240

J2 type Jeans = 240 * 5/12 = 100
J3 type Jeans = 240 * 3/12 = 60
On the 6th month:
Total Jeans sold = 720 * 35/300 = 84
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3

= (48*576) + (60*734.4) + (36*787.2)
= 27648 + 44064 + 28339.2
= Rs. 100051.2

= 32 + 28 + 48 = 108
Total J3 type Jeans sold on the 1st, 5th and 6th month
= 18 + 60 + 21 = 99
Required percentage = [(108 – 99)/99] *100 = 9.09%

10. In which of the following month the amount received by Raymond is maximum if all the Jeans sold the same as cost price?
1
2
3
4
5
Option E
On the 1st month,
Total amount = (24*450) + (30*540) + (18*600)
= 10800 + 16200 + 10800
= 37800
On the 2nd month,
Total amount = (32*450) + (40*540) + (24*600)
= 14400 + 21600 + 14400
= 50400
On the 3rd month,
Total amount = (28*450) + (35*540) + (21*600)
= 12600 + 18900 + 12600
= 44100
On the 4th month,
Total amount = (48*450) + (60*540) + (36*600)
= 21600 + 32400 + 21600
= 75600
On the 5th month,
Total amount = (80*450) + (100*540) + (60*600)
= 36000 + 54000 + 36000
= 126000
On the 6th month,
Total amount = (28*450) + (35*540) + (21*600)
= 12600 + 18900 + 12600
= 44100

11. It is known that 25% of the Jeans were slightly damaged in each month. If Raymond managed to sell the Jeans which were slightly damaged at 20% loss, then find the amount made by Raymond for selling the damaged Jeans on the 2nd, 4th and 5th month. (Consider the ratio of the damaged Jeans in the three categories is same as the ratio which they bought)?
Rs. 50455
Rs. 50000
Rs. 70400
Rs. 20400
Rs. 50400
Option E
Total damaged Jeans = 720 * 25/100 = 180
SP of J1 type Jeans = 450 *80/100 = 360
SP of J2 type Jeans = 540 * 80/100 = 432
SP of J3 type Jeans = 600 * 80/100 = 480
On the 2nd month:
Total damaged Jeans sold = 96 * 25/100 = 24
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3
J1 type Jeans = 24 * 4/12 = 8
J2 type Jeans = 24 * 5/12 = 10
J3 type Jeans = 24 * 3/12 = 6
Total amount received by Raymond
= (8*360) + (10*432) + (6*480)
= 2880 + 4320 + 2880
= Rs. 10080
On the 4th month:
Total damaged Jeans sold = 144 * 25/100 = 36
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3
J1 type Jeans = 36 * 4/12 = 12
J2 type Jeans = 36 * 5/12 = 15
J3 type Jeans = 36 * 3/12 = 9
Total amount received by Raymond
= (12*360) + (15*432) + (9*480)
= 4320 + 6480 + 4320
= Rs. 15120
On the 5th month:
Total damaged Jeans sold = 240 * 25/100 = 60
Ratio of J1, J2 and J3 is 4: 5: 3
J1 type Jeans = 60 * 4/12 = 20
J2 type Jeans = 60 * 5/12 = 25
J3 type Jeans = 60 * 3/12 = 15
Total amount received by Raymond
= (20*360) + (25*432) + (15*480)
= 7200 + 10800 + 7200
= 25200
Total amount = 10080 + 15120 + 25200 = Rs. 50400
