- Naman bought a bike for Rs.18000. He spent 20% of the amount that he had paid for buying it for its repair. He then sold the bike to Charu and earned a profit of 25%. Find the amount paid by Charu to Naman.
Rs.44000Rs.38000Rs.33000Rs.27000Rs.20000Option D

Total cost of the bike = 18000*1.20 = Rs.21600

Amount paid by Charu = 21600*1.25 = Rs.27000 - A shopkeeper marked an article at some percentage more than the cost price of the article. The shopkeeper sold the article at 12% profit and allows a discount of 20%. Find the percentage by which the article was marked above the cost price.
30%70%60%50%40%Option E

Let the marked price of the article be Rs.y.

Article was marked by x% above the cost price.

SP of the article = 80% of y = Rs. 4y/5

112% of the CP = 4y/5

CP of the article = (4y*100)/(5*112) = Rs.5y/7

(100+x)% of 5y/7 = y

=> (100+x)% = 7/5

=> x = 40% - Aman marked his bike 40% above cost price and sold it to Arun after two consecutive discounts of 10% and 20%. In this transaction Aman made a profit of Rs.416. Find the profit earned by Arun if he sold the bike to Alok at a profit of 12%.
Rs.6901.98Rs.6289.92Rs.7250.23Rs.6670.74Rs.6115.85Option B

Let the CP of the bike be Rs.x.

MP of the bike = 1.40*x = Rs.1.4x

SP of the bike = 0.90*0.80*1.4x = Rs.1.008x

Profit = 1.008x â€“ x = 416

=> x = 52000

CP of the bike for Aman = Rs.52000

SP of bike for Aman = CP of bike for Arun = 52000+416 = Rs.52416

Profit earned by Arun = 52416*0.12 = Rs.6289.92 - The selling price of an article by two different vendors is Rs.960. and profit earned is 25%. One vendor counts his profit on cost price while other one counts his profit on selling price. Find the difference of profit earned by both the vendors.
Rs.33Rs.62Rs.44Rs.50Rs.48Option E

CP of item for first vendor = 960/(100+25)% = Rs.768

CP of item for second vendor = 960*(100-25)% = Rs.720

Profit for first vendor = 960 â€“ 768 = Rs.192

Profit for second vendor = 960 â€“ 720 = Rs.240

Required Difference = 240 â€“ 192 = Rs.48 - On selling an article for Rs.(x-1800), Esha incurred a loss equal to half of the profit she would have gained on selling the same article for Rs.(x+2700). Find the value of x, if to gain a profit of 27.5% she needs to sell the article for Rs.8925.
85007715730066857000Option C

CP of the article = 8925/1.275 = Rs.7000

Loss incurred = 7000 â€“ (x-1800) = Rs.(8800 – x)

Profit gained = (x+2700) â€“ 7000 = Rs.(x-4300) (8800-x) = (x-4300)/2

=> x = 7300 - A shopkeeper buys 12 books at Rs.200 each. He sells 8 books at 15% profit. He marks up the remaining books by 25% and then offers a discount of 12%. Find the overall profit percentage
11.11%17.27%15.23%10.15%13.33%Option E

CP of 12 books = 200*12 = Rs. 2400

SP of 8 books = 8*1.15*200 = Rs.1840

MP of each remaining book = 200*1.25 = Rs.250

SP of each remaining book = 250*0.88 = Rs.220

SP of each remaining 4 books = 220*4 = Rs.880

Total SP of 12 books = 1840+880 = Rs.2720

Profit% = (2720 – 2400)*100/2400 = 13.33% - The cost price of an item is Rs.120 and the profit percentage is (x+30)% of the cost price. If the cost price is increased by 25% and selling price remains same the profit percentage is (x-20)% . Find the value of x.
1201059085100Option A

Profit on item = (x+30)% of 120

SP = (x+30)% of 120+120

New CP = (100+25)% of 120 = Rs.150

SP = 150 + (x-20)% of 150 (x+30)% * 120 + 120 = 150 + (x-20)% of 150

=> 12x + 360 â€“ 15x + 300 = 300

=> x = 120 - Gopal bought a laptop for Rs.48900. He marked the price of the laptop 60% above the cost price and sold to Radha at 35% discount. If Radha sold the same laptop to Komal at 25% profit. Find the discount offered by Radha provided the marked price of the laptop was same as Gopal had marked.
18.75%13.34%19.12%14.35%15.68%Option A

MP of the laptop = 160% of 48900 = Rs.78240

The price at which Gopal sold the laptop to Radha = 65% of 78240 = Rs.50856

The price at which Radha sold the laptop to Komal = 125% of 50856 = Rs.63570

Discount = 78240 – 63570 = Rs.14670

Discount% = 14670/78240*100 = 18.75% - A shopkeeper sold an article for Rs.540 and earned a profit of 20%. Had the shopkeeper sold the same article after giving a cash back of Rs.â€™xâ€™ on the selling price he would have still earned a profit of (100/9)% , find the value of x.
Rs.30Rs.40Rs.20Rs.60Rs.50Option B

CP of the article = 540/1.2 = Rs.450

Let cash back be x. (100+100/9)% of 450 = 540 â€“ x

=> x = Rs.40 - After receiving 25% discount on an item, Anil needs to pay 2.5% CGST and 2.5% SGST on the discounted price . If Anil had got only 20% discount paid the same tax on discounted price then, he would have to pay Rs.84 extra. Find the original marked price of the item.
Rs.1770Rs.1420Rs.1550Rs.1600Rs.1125Option D

Total tax = 2.5+2.5 = 5%

Let the original marked price be x. (x*4/5*1.05) â€“ (x*3/4*1.05) = 84

=> x*1.05(4/5-3/4) = 84

=> x = Rs.1600
