A)

6300


B)

6400


C)

6500


D)

6600



Correct Answer :

35


Explanation :

Let the original selling price of mobile is x.
As is given,
x - (25/100) * x = 4875

3x/4 = 4875
x = 4875*4 /3 = 6500
Hence, original selling price of mobile is 6500.

Ticket for an adult is 500 and a child is 200. 1 child goes free with two adults. If a group has 20 adults and 8 children what will be the discount the group get?

A)

53.43 %


B)

13.79 %


C)

32.2 %


D)

35.06 %



Correct Answer :

13.79%


Explanation :

Total Price of the ticket without discount = (20*500 + 200 *8)=11600

Total Price of ticket with discount = (20*500) = 10000

Total discount % = (11600-10000)*100/11600 = 13.79%

Pepsi and Coke, there are two companies, selling the packs of cold­drinks. For the same selling price Pepsi gives two successive discounts of 10% and 25% on marked price, while Coke sells it by giving two successive discounts of 15% and 20% on marked price. What is the ratio of their marked price?

B)

C)
136 : 135

D)
73 : 77


Correct Answer :

136 : 135


Explanation :

Let MP of Pepsi be P and Coke be C.
P after two successive discounts = 90/100 * 75/100 * P
C after two successive discounts = 85/100 * 80/100 * C
therefore ratio or price , 90/100 * 75/100 * P = 85/100 * 80/100 * C
P/C = 85 * 80 / 90 * 75 => 17 * 8 / 9 * 15
P/C =136/135

A)
50%

B)
56.80%

C)
70%

Price after 2 nd discount = Rs. (80/100) x 90 = Rs. 72
Price after 3 rd discount = Rs. (60/100) x 72 = Rs. 43.20

Thus, overall discount = (100 - 43.20) = 56.8%

Let the CP be 100. Then,

= 81

Single discount = (100-81)% = 19%
