= 20%

Therefore, the percentage increase will be 20%

Question no – (2)

Solution :

According to the given question,

Sales increased from Rs 60,000 per day in 2017 to Rs 82,500 per day in 2018.

Sale increase,

= (82500 – 60000)

= 22500

Percentage increase,

= (22500/60000 × 100)

= 37.5 %

Therefore, the percentage increase in sales will be 37.5%

Question no – (4)

Solution :

As per the question we know,

The price of silk was Rs 4000 per metre.

Due to lack of supply, the price went up by 6%.

Now, the new price of silk,

= (4000 + 4000 × 6/100) Rs

= 4000 + 240

= 4240 Rs

Therefore, the new price of silk per metre will be Rs. 4240

Question no – (5)

Solution :

According to the given question,

The population of a town was = 6,50,000.

Due to an epidemic, the population of the town went down by = 12%.

Now, the current population of the town,

= 650000 – (650000 × 12/100)

= (650000 – 78000)

= 572000

Therefore, the current population of the town will be 572000.

Comparing Quantities Exercise 9.2 Solution :

Question no – (2)

Solution :

As per the given question we know,

Sunita sold her old toys for Rs 475 and incurred a loss of 5%.

Selling Price = 475

Loss = 5%

Let, Cost Price = 100 Rs

95 …………. 475

1 …………. 475/95

100 …………. 475/95 × 100

= 500 Rs Cost Price

Now, the selling price to make profit 8%,

= 500 + (500 × 8/100) Rs

= 500 + 40

= 540 Rs

Therefore, she should sell them to Rs. 540 make a profit of 8%.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

According to the question we know,

Cost Price of saree = 1050;

Loss = 150

Selling Price,

= (1050 – 150)

= 900

Now, the loss percentage,

= (150/1050 × 100)

= 14.28%.

Therefore, Rashmi’s loss percentage was 14.28%.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

According to the given question,

Raman bought eggs for Rs 6 each

Sold them making a profit of Rs 1.5 per egg.

Now, Selling Price of egg,

= (6 + 1.5) Rs

= 7.5 Rs

Therefore, Raman should sell the eggs at 7.5 Rs.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

According to the given question we know,

20 oranges price = 120 Rs

200 oranges price,

= 120/20 × 200

= 1200

Fresh orange

= (200 – 25)

= 175

Now, the selling price of oranges,

= (175 × 5)

= 875

The loss,

= (1200 – 875)

= 325 Rs

The loss percentage,

= (325/1200 × 100)%

= 27.08

Therefore, the loss percentage of fruit seller will be 27.08%

Question no – (6)

Solution :

As per the question we know,

Neha sold her old bicycle suffering a loss of 6%.

If she had sold her bicycle for Rs 90 more,

She would have made a profit of 3%.

Now, Let, CP of bicycle = 100

Selling Price, = 94

If he sell = (100 + 3) = 103

(103 – 94) % = 90 Rs

9 % = 90 Rs

= 100 % = (90/9 × 100)

= 1000 Rs

Therefore, the cost price of the bicycle will be 1000 Rs.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

As per the question,

A businessman sold a flat making a profit of 16%.

He sold the flat for Rs 5,00,000 less, he would have suffered a loss of 16%.

Let, CP of flat = x Rs

SP of flat in 16% profit

= x + x × 16/100

= x + 4x/25

In 16 % Loss, SP

= x – x × 16/100

= x – 4x/25

From question,

x + 4x/25 – x + 4x/25 = 500000

= 8x/25 = 5 Lakh

= x = 5 × 25/8 Lakh

= 500000 × 25/8

= 1562500 Rs

Therefore, the cost price of the flat 1562500 Rs.

Comparing Quantities Exercise 9.3 Solution :

Discount = (800 – 760) = 40 Rs

(c) MRP Cosmetics = 300

Discount = 1000

Selling Price = (3000 – 1000) = 2000 Rs

Discount Percentage

= (1000/3000 × 100) %

= 33.33 %

(d) MRP = 10000

Discount = 2000

Selling Price = (10000 – 2000) = 8000

Discount Percentage,

= (2000/10000 × 100)%

= 20%

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(a) MP = 500

D = 20%

Discount = (500 × 20/100)

= 100

(500 – 100)

= 400%

= (400 × 5/100)

= 20

6p = (400 – 20) = 380

(b) MP = 1000

Discount = (1000 × 20/100)

= 200

(1000 – 200) = 800

= 800 – (800 × 5/100)

= 800 – 40

= 760 Rs

(c) M.P = 1700

20% discount, = (1700 – 1700 × 20/100)

= (1700 – 340)

= 1360 Rs

= (1360 – 1360 × 5/100)

= (1360 – 68)

= 1292 Rs

(d) MP = 600

Discount = 600 – (600 × 20/100)

= 600 – 120

= 480 Rs

= 480 – (480 × 5/100)

= (480 – 24)

= 456 Rs

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(a) Mobile phone : Rs 9,000

Solution :

According to the question,

Cost price of a car is = Rs 5,00,000.

Salesman marks it at = 10% above the cost price.

Car is sold at a discount of = 5%.

M.P. of car,

= 500000 + (500000 × 10/100)

= 500000 + 50000

= 550000

5% discount SP = 5

= 550000 – (550000 × 5/100)

= (550000 – 27500) Rs

= 522500

Profit,

= (522500 – 500000)

= 22500 Rs.

Therefore, his profit will be 22500 Rs.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

As per the question we know,

A shopkeeper gives successive discounts of 15% and 20%

Selling price is = Rs 8,160,

Now, let M.P. is = x Rs

x × 85/100 × 80/100 = 8160

= x = 8160 × 100 × 100/85 × 80

= 12000 Rs

Thus, the marked price of the TV will be 12000 Rs.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Let, Cost Price is = 100

MRP = 130

Discount = 15%

Selling Price = 130 – (130 × 15/100)

= (130 – 19.5) Rs

= 110.5 Rs.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

As per the question,

Mahesh wants to buy a vacuum cleaner that costs = Rs 8000.

The GST on the vacuum cleaner is = 18%

= 100x +12x/100 = 16240

= x = 16240 × 100/112

= 14500 Rs

Price is 14500 Rs

Therefore, the price of the mobile phone 14500 Rs before the GST was added.

Comparing Quantities Exercise 9.4 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

As per the given question,

A man paid Rs 8640 for a loan of Rs 8000 taken for 320 days.

1st, Simple Interest,

= (8640 – 8000)

= 640 Rs

2nd, Time,

= 320 day = 320/365 yr

= 64/73 yr

Now the rate (r),

= 640 × 100 × 73/64 × 8000

= 9.12%

Thus, the rate of simple interest charged by the bank was 9.12%

Question no – (2)

Solution :

1st, Simple Interest of 8000 Rs

= 8000 × 8 × 3/100

= 1920 Rs

Now, let time ‘t’ of 3000 Rs

S.I = 3000 × 4 × t/100

= 1920 = 3000 × 4 × t/100

t = 1920 × 100/3000 × 4

= 16 years

Therefore, the required time will be 16 years.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Let, principal = ‘p’

t = 16 years

Amount = 3p

Simple Interest = (3p – p) = 2p

Simple Interest = p r t/100

x × 12/100 ×2 = 7000

= 24x = 7000 × 100/24

and, 2p = p × r × 16/100

= r = 200/16 = 12.5%

Let, amount become 4 times in ‘t’ years

= 4p – p = 3p

= S.I

3p = p × 12.5 × t/100

t = 300/12.5

= 24 years

Therefore, the time required by the same amount to become four times will be 24 years.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

In 2 years SI = (6 ×2) 12%

Amount = 7000

r = 6%

t = 2 years

p (1 + 6.0/100) × 2 = 7000

= p × 1.12 = 7000

= p = 7000/1.12

= 6250 Rs

Therefore, the amount Surekha took as loan was 6250 Rs.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

As we know that,

Simple Interest = principal × rate × time/100

= 375 = 1500 × x × x/100

= x² = 375 × 100/1500

= 25

= x = 5

R = 5%,

T = 5 year

Therefore, the number of years will be 5 year.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Given, R = 8/2 = 4%

t = 1 year 6 month

= 1 1/2 year

= 3/2 year

= 3 year

Amount = p (1 + r/100)t

= 5000(1 + 4/100)3

= 5000 × (104/100)3

= 5624.32 Rs

Now, the Compound Interest,

= (5624.32 – 5000)

= 624.32 Rs

Therefore, the compound interest will be 624.32 Rs.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

Principal = 20000

rate= 20/2%

= 10%

time = 3/2 × 2

Amount = 20000(1 + 10/100)3

= 20000 × 110 × 110 × 110/100 × 100 × 100

= 26620 Rs

Compound Interest,

= (26620 – 20000)

= 6620 Rs

Simple Interest,

= 20000 × 20 × 1.5/100

= 6000

CI – SI = (6620 – 6000) Rs

= 620 Rs

Question no – (8)

Solution :

1st, the Simple Interest,

= p × r × t/100

= 2000 × 8 × 3/100

= 480 Rs

2nd, the Amount = P(1 + R/100)t

= 2000 (1 + 8/100)3

= 2000 × (108/100)3

= 2000 × 27/25 × 27/25 × 27/25

= 2519.42 Rs

Compound Interest,

= (2519.42 – 2000)

= 519.42 Rs

Now, C.I – S.I

= (519.42 – 480)

= 39.42

Therefore, the difference between CI and SI will be Rs. 39.42

Question no – (9)

Solution :

As per the given question we know,

Principal = 12000,

time = 2

rate = 14/2 = 7%

Amount = 12000 (1 + 7/100)²

= 12000 (107/100)²

= 12000 × 107 × 107/100 × 100

= 13738.80

Compound Interest,

= (13738.80 – 12000)

= 1738.80 Rs

Thus, the Compound interest will be 1738.80 Rs.

Question no – (10)

Solution :

As per the given question we know,

Principal = 8000

Rate = 10%

time = 1 1/2 year = 6 quarter

Amount,

= 8000 (1 + 10/100)6

= 8000 × 110/100 × 110/100 × 110/100

= 14160 Rs

Compound Interest,

= (14160 – 8000) Rs

= 6160 Rs.

Therefore, the amount is 14160 and the compound interest is 6160 Rs.

Question no – (11)

Solution :

Let, time taken ‘t’

5618 = 5000 (1 + 6/100)t

= 5618/5000 = (1 + 6/100)t

= (106/100)t

= 2809/2500

= (53/50)t

= (53/50)2

= (53/50)t

t = 2 yr

Therefore, Rs 5000 to become Rs 5618 pit will take 2 years.

Question no – (12)

Solution :

Let, Rate of interest = R

13310 = 10000 (1 + R/100)3

= 13310/10000 = (1 + R/100)3

= (11/10)3 = (1 + R/100)3

= R/100 = 11/10 – 1

= 11 – 10/10

= 1/10

Rate = 100/10 = 10%

Therefore, the rate of interest will be 10%

Question no – (13)

Solution :

Let, principal = P

13225 = p (1 + 15/100)²

= p (115/100)²

= p (115/100)² = 13225

= p = 13225/(115/100)²

= 13225 × 100 × 100/115 × 115

= 10000 Rs

Therefore, the sum of money invested by Seema is 10000 Rs.

Question no – (14)

Solution :

Let, principal = p

6655 = p(1 + 10/100)3

= p (110/100)3

= p × (11/10)3

= p × (11/10)3 = 6655

p = 6655 × 10 × 10 × 10/11 × 11 × 11

= 5000 Rs

Therefore, the required sum of money will be 5000 Rs.

Question no – (15)

Solution :

Difference will be,

= 10000 × 6.5 × 6.5/100 × 100 Rs

= 42.25 Rs

Therefore, the difference between the Compound Interest (C.I) and Simple Interest (S.I) will be 42.25 Rs.

Question no – (16)

Solution :

As per the given question,

Rate = 2%

Time = 3 yr

Compound Interest = p (1 + r/100)t – p

= 306.04 = p (1 + 2/100)3 – p

= p [1.061208 – 1]

= p = 306.04/0.061208

= 5000 Rs

Now, Simple Interest,

= 5000 × 2 × 3/100

= 300 Rs

Therefore, the Simple Interest (S.I) will be 300 Rs.

Solution :

According to the question,

rate of 5% per year consecutively for 2 years

rate of 1.5% for the next 3 years

Population 5 years ago = 23,45,000,

Current population of that town,

= 2345000 (1 + 5/100)² (1 – 1.5/100)³

= 2345000 × (105/100)² × (100 – 1.5/100)³

= 2345000 × 105 × 105/100 × 100 × 98.5 × 98.5 × 98.5/100 × 100 × 100

= 2470758
