- Mani bough a printer and sold it to Raj for Rs.2160 thereby making a profit of 20%. At what price Mani must sell the printer to earn a profit of 40%?
Rs.2780Rs.2665Rs.2000Rs.2520Rs.2200Option D

CP be x. x*1.2 = 2160

=> x = 1800

Required Amount = 1800*1.4 = Rs.2520 - A shopkeeper bought an article for Rs.x. He spent Rs.650 on its repair. He marked the article 60% above the total price of the article for the shopkeeper and then sold the article offering two consecutive discounts of 10% and 25%. If he made a profit of Rs.248 then find the value of x.
20002450237022002780Option B

Total CP of the article = Rs.(x+650)

MP = (x+650)*1.60 = Rs.(1.6x+1040)

SP = x+650+248 = Rs.(1.6x+1040)*0.90*0.75

=> x + 898 = 1.08x + 702

=>x = 2450 - A shopkeeper marked an article at x% above the cost price and sold it after two consecutive discounts of 10% and 20%. In this transaction he had a profit of Rs.360. Find the value of x if the marked price of the article is Rs.6750.
40%30%60%20%50%Option E

SP of the article = 6750*0.80*0.90 = Rs.4860

CP = 4860 â€“ 360 = Rs.4500

MP = 4500*(100+x)/100 = 6750

Therefore, 4500+45x = 6750

=> x = 50% - The ratio of number of books and number of pens sold by a shopkeeper is 5:3 resp. If the price of 6 pens is Rs.270 and the price of a book is 60% more than the price of a pen. If the total revenue earned by the shopkeeper is Rs.2475 find the number of books sold by shopkeeper.
2325242822Option B

Price of each pen = 270/6 = Rs.45

Price of each book = 45*1.6 = Rs.72

Now, 3x*45 + 5x*72 = 2475

=> x = 5

Number of books sold by the shopkeeper = 5*5 = 25 - Article X and Y were sold at 10% and 15% discounts resp. Cost price of both articles was same. Find the ratio marked price of the article A and B resp. if profit earned from article A and B was 8% and 40/3% resp.
7:43:59:105:29:8Option C

Let the CP of both the article be Rs.x.

SP of X = 108% of x = Rs.108x

SP of Y = 340/3% of x = Rs.17x/15

MP of X = 1.08x/0.9 = Rs.1.2x

MP of Y = 17x/15/0.85 = Rs.4x/3

Required ratio = 1.2x:4x/3 = 9:10 - The ratio of the cost price of two articles A and B is 5:4 resp. The shopkeeper sold article A and article B at 20% and 30% profit resp. Find the overall profit percent of the shopkeeper.
29.46%28.03%22.22%24.44%20.48%Option D

SP of article A = 1.2*5x = Rs.6x

SP of article B = 1.3*4x = Rs.5.2x

Total Profit = 11.2x â€“ 9x = Rs.2.2x

Required Profit% = (2.2x/9x)*100 = 24.44% - A shopkeeper is giving a discount of 20% on the marked price but a customer bargains and the shopkeeper sells him at Rs. 240 less than he was supposed to sell. If the profit of the shopkeeper is decreased from 80% to 50% find the marked price of the item.
13001600110015001800Option E

Let the MP be x.

And CP be y. 1.8y = 0.8x —-(1)

And 1.5y = 0.8x â€“ 240 —-(2)

Now, 1.8y = 1.5y + 240

=> y = Rs.800

So, x = (1.8*800)/0.8 = 1800 - Tim brought a bike and sold it to Harry and earned a profit of 40%. Had he bought it for Rs.1000 less and sold it Rs.5000 less he would have gained 25%. Find the amount spent by Harry to buy the bike.
Rs.35000Rs.33000Rs.25000Rs.20000Rs.30000Option A

Let the CP be x.

SP = Rs.1.4x

Now, 1.4x â€“ 5000 = 1.25(x – 1000)

=> x = 25000

Amount spent by Harry to buy the bike = 25000*1.4 = Rs.35000 - A and B together started a firm with an investment of Rs.30,000 and Rs.50,000 resp. After completion of one year, A increased investment by 20%, while B decreased investment by 14%. If at the end of second year, total profit earned by them was Rs.47700. Find the share of profit of B.
Rs.23200Rs.27000Rs.29800Rs.28800Rs.27900Option E

Total investment by A = 30000+1.2*30000 = Rs.66000

Total investment by B = 50000+0.86*50000 = Rs.93000

Ratio of investment = 66000:93000 = 22:31

Profit share of B = 31/53*47700 = Rs.27900 - Puja marks an article at 30% above its cost price and sells it to Priya at 12% discount. Priya marks it up by 50% and sells it to Gita at a discount of 25%. If selling price by Priya is Rs.1001 more than the selling price by Puja, find the price at which Sita buys the article.
Rs.8100Rs.9700Rs.9200Rs.9000Rs.9009Option E

Let the price of the article but by Puja be Rs.x

MP for Puja =x+30% of x = Rs.1.3x

SP for Puja = 1.3x*0.88 = Rs.1.144x

MP for Priya = 1.144x * 1.5 = Rs.1.716x

SP for Priya = 1.716x*0.75 = 1.287x

Now, 1.287x â€“ 1.144x = 1001 => x = Rs.7000

CP for Sita = SP for Priya = 1.287x = 1.287*7000 = Rs.9009
