**Percentage Profit and Loss Simple Interest Exercise 9.3 Solution**

**Question no – (1) **

**Solution :**

**(i) Cost Price = Rs 50**

Selling Price = Rs 90

Gain = (90 – 50)

= 40

**∴** Gain% = Gain/CP × 100

= 40/50 × 100

= 80%

Thus, gain percent is 80%

**(ii) Cost Price = Rs 560**

Selling Price = Rs 630

Gain = (630 – 560) = 70

Gain% = Gain/CP × 100

= 70/560 × 100

= 25/2

= 12 1/2%

Thus, gain percent is 12 1/2%

**(iii) Cost Price = Rs 300**

Selling Price = Rs 315

**∴** Gain

= (315 – 300)

= 15

Now, Gain percent,

= Gain/CP × 100

= 15/300 × 100

= 5%

Thus, gain percent is 5%

**(iv) Cost Price = Rs 20.25**

Selling Price = Rs 22.28

**∴** Gain,

= (22.28 – 20.25)

= 2.03

Now, Gain% = Gain/CP × 100

= 2.03/20.25 × 100

= 812/81

= 10.02%

Thus, gain percent is 10.02%

**Question no – (2) **

**Solution :**

**(i) Cost Price = Rs 400**

Selling Price = Rs 380

**∴** Loss = 400 – 380 = 20

Now the Loss% = Loss/CP × 100

= 20/400 × 100

= 5%

Thus, gain percent is 5%

**(ii) Cost Price = Rs 112.75**

Selling Price = Rs 107

Loss

= (112.75 – 107)

= 5.75

**∴** Loss% = Loss/CP × 100

= 5.75/112.75 × 100

= 2300/451

= 5 45/451%

Thus, loss percent is 5 45/451%

**(iii) Cost Price = Rs 350**

Selling Price = Rs 280

**∴** Loss = (350 – 280)

= 70 Rs

Now the Loss%

= Loss/CP × 100

= 70/350 × 100

= 20%

Thus, loss percent is 20%

**(iv)** Cost Price = Rs 450

Selling Price = Rs 360

**∴** Loss = (450 – 360)

= 90 Rs

Now, the Loss% = Loss/CP × 100

= 90/450 × 100

= 20%

Thus, loss percent is 20%

**Question no – (3)**

**Solution :**

In the given question,

Cost Price = 5000

Gain% = 10%

**∴** Total gain%,

= 5000 × 10/100

= 500

Therefore, the Selling Price,

= 5000 + 500

= 5500

Hence, the selling price of the TV is Rs 5500

**Question no – (4)**

**Solution :**

As we know, CP = SP + Loss

= 20 + 5

= 25 Rs.

**∴** Loss percent (%)

= 5/25 × 100

= 20%

Thus, the loss percent will be 20%

**Question no – (5)**

**Solution :**

According to the question,

5 eggs = 6 Rs.

1 eggs = 6/5 Rs.

and

8 eggs = 12 Rs.

1 eggs = 12/8 = 3/2 Rs.

Now,

**∴** 6/5 = 6 × 2/5 × 2 = 12/10

**∴** 3/2 = 3 × 5/2 × 5 = 15/10

Profit,

= 15/10 – 12/ 10

= 15 – 12 / 10

= 3/10

Profit%

= 3/10 / 6/5 × 100

= (3/10) / (6/65) × 100

= 25%

**Question no – (6)**

**Solution :**

First, the gain,

= (1820 – 1680)

= 140 Rs

Now, the gain%,

= 140/1680 × 100

= 25/3

= 8 1/3%

Therefore, the gain percent is 8 1/3%

**Question no – (7)**

**Solution :**

Given, total bought price,

= 2465 + 35

= 2500

First we find gain,

= 16/100 × 2500

= 400

**∴** Selling Price,

= 2500 + 400

= 2900

Therefore, selling price of the TV set will be Rs 2900.

**Question no – (8)**

**Solution :**

Cost Price,

= 10.80 × 4

= 43.20 Rs

Selling Price,

= ( 48 × .80 )

= 38.40 Rs

Now the loss,

= 43.20 – 38.40

= 4.80 Rs

Therefore loss percent(%)

= ( 4.80/43.20 × 100) %

= 100/9

= 11 1/9%

Hence, his loss percent is 11 1/9%

**Question no – (9)**

**Solution :**

**(i) C.P = Rs 148**

Profit = RS 10%

Total profit,

= 148 × 10/100

= 14.8

**∴** Selling Price,

= (148 + 14.8)

= 162.8 Rs.

Hence, the Selling Price will be 162.8 Rs.

**(ii) C.P = Rs 467**

Profit = Rs 14%

Total profit,

= 467 × 14/100

= 6538/100

= 65.38

**∴** Selling Price,

= (467 + 65.38)

= 532.38 Rs.

Hence, the Selling Price will be 532.38 Rs.

**(iii) C.P = Rs 987**

loss = 5 1/2%

Total loss,

= 987 × (11/2)/100

= 987 × 11/2 × 1/100

= 10857/200

= 54.28

**∴** Selling Price,

= (987 – 54.28)

= 932.72 Rs

Hence, the Selling Price will be 932.72 Rs.

**(iv) C.P = Rs 689.20**

Loss = 9%

Total loss,

= 689/100 × 9/100

= 62028/1000

= 62.28

**∴** Selling Price,

= 689.200 – 62.028

= 627.172 Rs

Hence, the Selling Price will be 627.172 Rs

**(v) C.P = Rs 489.46**

Profit = 48 1/33%

Total Profit

= 489.46/100 × 1585/33 × 100

= 9079483/33000

= 275.13

**∴** Selling Price,

= (489.46 + 275.13

= 764 .59 Rs

Hence, the Selling Price will be 764 .59 Rs

**Question no – (10) **

**Solution :**

**(i) Let, C.P = x**

∴ x + x × 8/100 = 168.48

= 100x + 8x/100 = 168.48

= 1084/100 = 16848/100

= x = 16848/100 × 100/108

= x = 156

Therefore, the Cost price will be Rs. 156

**(ii) S.P = Rs 1947.80**

loss = 10%

Cost Price,

= 1947.8/10 × 100/90

= 19478/9

= 2164.22

Hence, the Cost price will be Rs. 2164.42

**(iii) Selling Price = Rs 247.20**

Loss = 9%

Now,

C.P = 247.20 × 100/100 – 72

= 24720/10 × 100/28

= 6180/7

= 882.86

Therefore, the cost price will be Rs 882.86

**(iv) Selling price = Rs 742.60**

Loss = 9%

Now,

C.P = 742.60 × 100/100 – 9

= 7426/10 × 100/9

= 74260/91

= 816.04 Rs.

Thus, the Cost price will be 816.04 Rs.

**(v) Selling price = Rs 698.70**

Loss = 26 1/2%

Now,

C.P = 698.70 × 100/100 – 37

= 6987/10 × 2 × 100/2530

= 139740/253

= 552.33

Thus, the Cost price will be 753.96 Rs

**(vi) Selling price = Rs 475**

Loss = 37%

Now,

C.P = 475 × 100/100 – 37

= 475 100/63

= 47500/63

= 753.96

Thus, the Cost price will be 753.96 Rs

**Question no – (11)**

**Solution :**

First, Cost Price,

= 300 × 12

= 3600

Profit = 15 %

Now the Selling Price,

= 100 + 15/100 × 3600

= 115 × 36

= 4140

Thus, the selling price of the book will be Rs 4140

**Question no – (12)**

**Solution :**

Cost Price,

= 1600 × 3.75/1200

= 500

Selling Price,

= ( 900 × 1/2) + [(1600 – 900) × 2/5)

= 900 × 1/2 + 600 × 2/5

= 450 + 280

= 730

Now the gain Percent (%),

= (730 + 500 / 500 × 100)

= 230/5 %

= 46%

Thus, her gain percent will be 46%

**Question no – (13)**

**Solution :**

Loss on 1 dozen,

= 4/100 × 500

= 20 paise

S.P. of 1 dozen orange,

= ( 500 – 20 )

= 480 paise

Selling Price of 1 orange,

= 480/12

= 40 paise

Therefore, the selling price of 1 orange will be 40 paise.

**Question no – (14)**

**Solution :**

Let, he must sell x for a rupee

**∴** 1/x = 20/5100

= x = 5

**∴** He must sell 5 for a rupee.

**Question no – (15)**

**Solution :**

First, C.P. of 2 dozen oranges

= 5.50 + 6.50

= 12

Now, S.P. of 2 dozen oranges

= (2 × 7.50)

= 15

Therefore, gain percent(%)

= (3/12 × 100)

= 25%

**Question no – (16)**

**Solution :**

Cost Price,

= ( 150 × 10 ) + 100

= 1600

Selling Price,

= 150 × 2 × 1.20

= 2160

Now the gain,

= 2160 – 1600

= 560

Therefore, gain%

= 560/1600 × 100

= 35%

**Question no – (17)**

**Solution :**

According to the question,

A fan was bought for = Rs 60

Sold at a loss of = 15%

First Loss,

= 60 × 15/100

= 9

Now, the selling price,

= 60 – 9

= 51

Thus, the selling price of the fan is Rs 51.

**Question no – (18)**

**Solution :**

Total Cost price,

= 400 + 40

= 440

Now Profit,

= 400 × 10/100

= 44

**∴** Selling Price,

= 440+ 44

= 484

So, the selling price of the radio-set will be Rs. 484

**Question no – (19)**

**Solution :**

Total Cost price,

= 2750 + 50

= 2800

= loss 10%

**∴** loss,

= 2800 × 10/100

= 280

**∴** Selling Price,

= ( 2800 – 280 )

= 2520

**∴** Selling price of 1 kg,

= 2520/500

= 5.04 Rs.

**Question no – (20)**

**Solution :**

In the question,

A scooter is sold at a loss of 8 1/3%

= 8 1/3%

= 25/3%

**∴** Cost Price of the scoter,

= 8250 × 100/100 – 25/3

= 8250 × (100 × 3/275)

= 9000

Thus, the cost price of the scooter will be Rs 9000

**Question no – (21)**

**Solution :**

First we find the Cost Price,

= 36000 + 2400

= 38400 Rs

Now, the Selling Price,

= 38400 × (100 – 4/100)

= 384 × 96

= 36864 Rs

Therefore, he sell the house in 36864 Rs

**Question no – (22)**

**Solution :**

First, Total C.P,

= ( 3150 × 20 ) + 250

= 63000 + 250

= 63250 Rs.

**∴** S.P = ( 3500 × 20 )

= 70000

**∴** His total profit,

= ( 70000 – 63250 )

= 6750 Rs.

**Question no – (23)**

**Solution :**

According to the question,

Buy 11 stick for 40

Buy 1 stick for 40/11

Sell 10 stick for 44

Sell 1 stick for 44/10

His gain,

= 44/10 – 40/11

= 484 – 400/110

= 84/10

**∴** Gain Percent (%),

= ( 84/100 ) / ( 40/11 ) × 100

= (84/110) × (11/40) × 100

= 21%

Thus, his gain percent will be 21%

**Question no – (24)**

**Solution :**

First, (4 + 5) = 9 kg costs

= (4 × 20 + 5 × 30)

= 230

1 kg costs

= 230/9

= 25..55

and,

8 kg for (45 × 8)

= 360

= 1 kg for 360/8

= 45

Now, his gain,

= (45 – 25.55)

= 19.45

**∴** His gain percent (%)

= 19.45/25..25 × 100

= 38900/511

= 76.12%

Therefore, his gain percent will be 76.12%

**Question no – (25)**

**Solution :**

According to the question we know,

She bought bananas at 2 for 1 rupee

She bought bananas at 1 for 1/2 rupee

She bought bananas at 3 for 1 rupee

She bought bananas at 1 for 1/3 rupee

**∴** Total coat for 2 bananas,

= 1/3 + 1/2

= 5/6

Now,

Sold 5 bananas for 2 rupees

Sold 1 bananas for 2/5 rupees

**∴** Sold 2 bananas for,

= 2 × 2/5

= 4/5 rupee

**∴ **Her loss,

= 5/6 – 4/5

= 25 – 24 / 30

= 1/30

**∴** Her loss percent (%)

= 1 / (3 × 5/6) × 100

= 6 / (30 × 5) × 100

= 4%

**Question no – (26)**

**Solution :**

First we find,

C.P = 18 × 25

= 990 Rs

S.P = ( 12 × 65 ) + [ (18 – 12) × 50]

= 780 + (6× 50)

= 780 + 300

= 1080 Rs

**∴ His gain,**

= 1080 – 990

= 90 Rs

**∴** His gain Percent (%)

= 90/990 × 100

= 100/11

= 9 1/11%

Thus, his gain percent will be 9 1/11%

**Question no – (27)**

= 27846/365

= 76.29 Rs

**∴** Amount,

= 2500 + 76.29

= 2626.29 Rs

Therefore, the Simple Interest is Rs 76.29 and Amount is Rs 2626.29

**(vii) Principal = Rs 730**

Rate = 4 /12% = 9/2%

Time = 62 days = 62/365

**∴** Simple Interest,

= (730 × 9 × 62) × (100 × 2 × 365)

= 279/50

= 5.58 Rs

**∴** Amount,

= 730 + 5.58

= 735.58 Rs

Hence, the Simple Interest is Rs 5.58 and Amount is Rs 735.58

**(viii) Principal = Rs 3500**

Rate = 6%

Time = 240 days = 240/365 = 48/73

Now Simple Interest,

= (3500 × 6 × 48) × (100 × 73)

= 10080/73

= 138.08 Rs

**∴** Amount,

= 3500 + 38.08

= 3638.08 Rs

Therefore, the Simple Interest is Rs 138.08 and Amount is Rs 3638.08

**Question no – (2)**

**Question no – (16)**

**Solution :**

Total interest,

= 10000 × 9 × 1 /100 + 2500 × 9 × 2/100

= 900 + 1350

= 2250 Rs

**∴** He will get after

= 10000 + 2250

= 12250 Rs

**Question no – (17)**

**Solution :**

In the given question we get,

Principal = 25000 Rs

Time = 1 1/2 years

Rate = 11%

Simple Interest,

= 2500 × 11 × 3 /100 × 2

= 4125

**∴** Amount,

= 29125

**∴** Cost of T.V.

= (291525 – 26500)

= 2625 Rs.

Therefore, the cost of the TV will be Rs 2625.

**Question no – (18)**

**Solution :**

From the question we know,

Principal = 65000 Rs

Time = 12%

Rate = 1 years (every year)

Now Simple Interest,

= 6500 × 12 × 1/100

= 7800 Rs

**∴** Value of each scholarship

= 7800/15

= 520 Rs

Hence, the value of each scholarship will be Rs 520
