Question no – (4)

Solution :

Given, Selling Price = 3852

Let, cost = CP

According to question,

Gain % = (SP – CP)/CP × 100

or, 7 = (3852 – CP) × 100/CP

or, 7 CP = 385200 – 100 CP

or, 100 CP + 7 CP = 385200

or, 107 CP = 385200

or, CP = 385200/107 = 3600

Gain %

= 4050 – 3600/3600 × 100

= 450/3600 × 100

= 12.5%

Therefore, his gain per cent will be 12.5%

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Let, CP = 100 × 100 – 5 × 1140

= 140 × 1140/95

= 1200

Now, Profit = 5%

SP1 = (100 + 5)/100 × 1200

= 105/100 × 120

= 1260 Rs.

Therefore, the original price of the cycle was 1260 Rs.

Question no – (7)

= 1/30

Now the Profit %

= 1/30/1/6 × 100

= 6/30 × 100

= 20%

Therefore, the gain percent will be 20%

Question no – (8)

Solution :

According to the question,

Cost Price of 1 orange = 1/52

Selling Price of 1 orange = 3/5

Profit,

= 3/5- 1/2

= 6 – 5/10

= 1/10

Now the Profit %

= 1/10/1/2 × 100

= 2/10 × 100

= 20%

Therefore, his gain per cent will be 20%

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Let, CP of 1 article = 1

Cost Price of 12 article = 12

Selling Price of 15 article = 15

Gain = 15 – 12 = 3

= 25%

Hence, his gain per cent will be 25%

Question no – (10)

Solution :

Cost Price of 1 article = 1

Cost Price of 15 article = 15

= SP of 12 article

Loss = 15 – 12 = 3

Loss = 15 – 12 = 3

Loss % = 3/15 × 100

= 20%

Therefore, the loss per cent will be 20%

Question no – (12)

Solution :

504 oranges = 504/12 = 42 dozen

250 oranges = 240/12 = 20 dozen

Cost Price of 42 dozen oranges = 42 × 4 = 168

Selling Price of 20 dozen oranges = 20 × 5 = 100

Selling Price of (42 – 20) = 22 dozen oranges = 22 × 6 = 132

Total SP of 42 oranges = (100 + 132)

= 232

CP > SP

Gain = 232 – 168 = 64

Gain % = 64/168 × 100

= 38.09%

Therefore, his gain per cent will be 38.09%

Question no – (13)

Solution :

Let, Selling Price of 1 table = x

Selling Price of 20 table = 20 x

Selling Price of 4 table = 4x

Cost Price of 20 table = 12000

According to question,

= 20x – 1200 = 4x

or, 20x – 4x = 12000

or, 16x = 12000

or, x = 12000/16

= 750 Rs.

Therefore, the S.P. of 1 table will be 750 Rs.

Question no – (15)

Solution :

Cost Price of 1 tables = 40/100 = 2/5

Selling Price of 20 tables

= 2/5 × 20 = 2/5 × 20 × 5/100

= 8 + 2 × 20 × 5/5 × 100 = 8 + 2/5

= 40 + 2/5

= 42/5

Whole Profit = 20%

Profit = 20/100 × 40 = 8

Cost Price of (100 – 20) = 80

= Tables = 80 × 2/5 = 38

Profit = (8 – 2/5)/38 × 100

= 38/5/38 × 100

= 38 × 100/38 × 5

= 20%

Therefore, he must sells the remainder at 20% gain.

Question no – (16)

Solution :

Cost Price of 80 kg rice @ 6.75 = 6.75 × 80 = 540

Cost Price of 120 kg rice @ 8

= 8 × 120 = 960

Total Cost Price of (120 + 80)

= 200 rice mix = 540 + 960 = 1500

Total Cost Price of (120 + 80)

= 1 rice mix = 1500/200

= 7.5 kg

Total Selling Price of (120 + 80)

= 1 rice = 7.5 × 120/100

= 9 kg

Question no – (17)

Solution :

Cost Price of the watch1

= 100/(100 + 10) × 1188

= 10/110 × 1188

= 1080 Rs

Cost Price of the watch1

= 100/100 – 10 × 1188

= 100/90 × 1188

= 1320 Rs

Selling Price of the watch+ watch2

= 1188 × 2

= 2376 Rs

Cost Price of the watch1 + watch2

= 1080 + 1320

= 2400 Rs

CP > SP,

Loss = 2400 – 2376 = 24

Loss = 24/2400 × 100

= 1%

Question no – (18)

Solution :

Let, Cost Price of watch = 100

Profit = 6 1/4% = 25/4 %

SP1 of watch = (100 + 25/4/100) × 100 = 425 + 25/4 = 425/4

= 106.25

Now, Loss = 6 1/4% = 25/4%

SP2 of watch,

= 9100 – 25/4)/100 × 100 – 25/4

= 400 – 25/4

= 375/4

= 93.75

SP1 – SP2 = 106.25 – 93.75 = 12.50

When (SP – SP2) = 12.50 then CP = 100

(SP1 – SP2) = 1 = then CP = 100/12.50

(SP1 – SP2) = 95 then CP

= 100/12.5 × 7

= 560 Rs

Therefore, the cost price of the watch will be 560 Rs.

Question no – (19)

Solution :

Cost Price of 6 lemon = 1

Cost Price of 1 lemon = 1/6

Cost Price of 8 lemon 1/9

Cost Price of 8 lemon = 1/8

Selling Price of 8 lemon = 1

SP of 1 lemon = 1/8

Total = 1/6 + 1/9 = 9 + 6/54

= 15/54 = 5/18

Total SP = 1/8 × 2 = 1/4

Loos = 5/18 – 1/4 = 20 – 5/72 = 5/24

Loss = 5/24 × 100/5/18

= 5 × 100 × 18/5 × 24

= 75%

Therefore, his loss per cent will be 75%

Question no – (20)

Solution :

Let, Cost Price of watch Ram = x

Selling Price of watch Ram

= x/10 + x = x + 20/10

= 11x/10

Cost Price of watch Mohan = 11x/10

Again of watch Mohan,

= 11/10 x + 4/100 × 11/10x

= 11/10x (1 + 4/100)

= 11/10x × (100 + 4)/100

= 11x × 104/100

Now, Cost Price of watch Sunil = 11x × 104/100

According to question,

11x × 104/100 = 1430

or, x = 1430 × 1000/11 × 1054

= 1250 Rs

Therefore, Ram purchase it in 1250 Rs.

Question no – (21)

Solution :

Selling Price of TV = 18000 × 95/100 = 17100

Selling Price of W.M 12000 × 120/100 = 14400

Total Cost Price = 18000 + 12000 = 30000

Total Selling Price = 17100 + 14400 + 14400 = 31500

Gain = 31500 – 30000 = 1500 %

Now the gain%,

= 1500/30000 × 100

= 5%

Therefore, his total gain percent will be 5%.

Question no – (22)

Solution :

Let, CP of pump-set = x

manufacturer = 10%

CP1 of manufacturer = 100x/100

wholesale = 15% gain

CP2 of wholesale = 115/100 × 110x/100 = 253x/200

retail dealer = 25% gain

CP3 of dealer = 125/100 × 253x/200

According to question,

= 125/100 × 253x/200 = 1265

or, x = 1265 × 200 × 100/253 × 125

= 800

Therefore, the cost of production of a pump-set will be Rs 800.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Let, good quality = x

Let, CP = 100

SP  = 100 + 30 = 130

CP of x good = 100x

Now, SP1 = 130x × 1/2 = 65x [∴ 1/2 of good 130 sells]

again Now, SP of remaining = x/4 good

15% = (100 – 15)/100 × 130 = 85/100 × 130

= 110.50

SP= 1/4 × 110.5- × X = 110.50X/4 = 27.625x

SP of last x/4 good 30% = 70/100 × 130 = 91

SP3 = 1/4 × 91 × x = 22.75x

Total SP= 65x + 27.625x + 22.75 = 115.375x

Profit = SP – CP  = 115.37x – 100x = 15.375x

Profit% = 15.375/100x × 100

= 15.375%

Therefore, his gain per cent altogether will be 15.375%.

A1 = P1 + SI1 = 2800 [After 4 years]

A2 = P2 + SI2 = 2200 [After 1 years]

SI1 – SI2 = SI3 = 2800 – 2200 = 600

SI3 for 3 year = 600

SI3 for 1 year = 600/3 = 200

P = 2200 – 200 [for 1 year]

= 2000 Rs

Now, SI = PRT/100

or, R = SI × 100/PT

= 100 × 200/2000 × 1

= 10%

Therefore, the sum of money is 2000 Rs and the rate of interest is 10%.

or, 6P = 16500 – 5P

or, 6P + 5P = 16500

or, 11p = 1600

or, P = 16500/11

or, P = 1500

P1 = 3300 – 1500

= 1800 Rs.

Question no – (18)

Solution :

For 1st year,

S.I = PRT/100 = 300 × 8 × 1/100 = 240

A = 3000 + 240 = 3240
