    CP of bike = 75400
    maintenance cost = 2600
    total cost price of Bike = 75400 + 2600 = 78000

  2. 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 ?
    1520
    1840
    2480
    1830
    2240
    Option 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

     

  3. 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.

    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%

    SP of article = 160x * 85/100 * 90/100 = 122.4x
    122.4x = 2448
    x = 2448/122.4 = 20
    CP = 100x = 2000

    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

    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

  9. 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 ?

    400
    525
    340
    260
    Option 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

     

  10. 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 ?

    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
