According to question,

Total SP on both =9100/70*100+

9100/130*100 =13000+7000=20,000

40%50%30%20%10%Option B

Let the old SP and revised SP =3x and 2x

Price * no. items =Revenue

ATQ, revenue in both case is equal

Then , Ratio of no. of times = 2.3

revenue = 3x*2 =2x*3

increased in no. of times =1/2*100 =50% - The cost price 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles . If the profit is 25%, then the value of x is,
14 articles16 articles17 articles18 articles19 articlesOption B

CP of 20 articles = SP of x articles

CP/SP= x/20

profit= 20-x

profit%= 20x-x/x*100

25=20-x/x*100

x=16 articles - A loss of 19% is converted to profit of 17%, when the selling price of articles is increased by rs. 360. Find the cost price of article.

SP=960

in 2nd case CP=2/5th 3600=1440

profit=25%

SP=1440*125/100=1800

total SP in both cases=1800+960=2760
