A shopkeeper marks his goods at such a price that he can deduct 20% for cash and yet make 20% profit. The marked price of an item which cost him 180 is?


एक दुकानदार अपने सामान को इस तरह के मूल्य पर चिह्नित करता है कि वह नकद के लिए 20% कटौती कर सकता है और फिर भी 20% लाभ कमा सकता है। 180 की कीमत वाली किसी वस्तु का चिह्नित मूल्य क्या होगा ?

A)
270

B)
240

C)
245

D)
260


Correct Answer :

270


Explanation :

CP = 180,Gain = 20%
SP = (120/100) * 180= 216

Let the Marked Price be x.
Then, 80% of x = 216
80x/100 = 216
x =216*100/80 =217

Thus, Marked Price is 270

A dealer buys an article marked at 40000 with 20% and 10% off. He spends 1200 on its repairs and sells it for 30000. What is his gain or loss per cent?


एक दुकानदार 40000 चिह्नित एक वस्तु पर 20% और 10% क्रंमबद्ध छूट के साथ खरीदता है। वह अपनी मरम्मत पर 1200 खर्च करता है और इसे 30000 के लिए बेचता है। उसका लाभ या हानि प्रतिशत क्या है?

A)
10% gain

B)
10% loss

C)
no profit no loss

D)
None of the above


Correct Answer :

no profit no loss


Explanation :

CP = (80% of 90% of 40000) + (1200)
= (80/100)*(90/100)*40000 + (1200)
= (28800 + 1200)
= 30000
So, CP = 30000 and SP = 30000
therefore no gain no loss in the transaction.

Gourav bought a scooter for 45000 rupees. If the shopkeeper has given him a discount of 10%, what was the marked price of the scooter?

C)
65000

D)
60000


Correct Answer :

50000


Explanation :

Let marked price was X. then
X - 10% of X = 45000

X = 45000/0.9
X = 50000

The marked price price was Rs. 50000

A cycle dealer sells a bicycle at a gain of 8%. Had he sold it for Rs. 75 less, he would have lost 2%. What is the cost price of the bicycle?


एक साइकिल डीलर साइकिल को 8% के लाभ पर बेचता है। अगर उसने इसे 75 रु कम मे बेची होती, वह 2% खो दिया होता। साइकिल की लागत कीमत क्या है।

A)
Rs. 850

B)
Rs. 350

C)
Rs. 750

D)
Rs. 450


Correct Answer :

Rs. 750


Explanation :

Let x be the cost price
selling price = [100 + gain%)/100]*x =108*x/100

if he had sold it at Rs 75 less, he would have lost 2% i.e.
108*x/100 - 75 = 98*x/100
108*x - 7500 = 98*x
10x = 7500

Cost price X= Rs 750

By selling 90 ball pens for Rs. 160, a person loses 20%. How many ball pens should be sold at Rs. 96 so as to have 20% profit?


एक व्यक्ति को 160 रुपये के 90 बॉल पेन बेचकर 20% की हानि हुई । 96 रुपये के कितने बाल पेन बेचे जाए कि 20% का लाभ हो ?

A)
36

B)
37

C)
46

D)
47


Correct Answer :

36


Explanation :

sp of 90 ball pens = rs 160 =20% loss
so, cp of 90 ball pens = 160*100 / (100-20) =rs 200
cp of 1 ball pen =200/90 =20/9

let X ball pens are sold to earn20% profit
then , cp of X ball pens = X*(20/9)
as given SP of X ball pens = rs 96 , 20% profit

hence X*(20/9)=96*100 / (100+20) = 80
X=80*(9/20) = 36

So, 36 ball pens should be sold for rs 96 to earn profit of 20%

A dealer buys a wrist watch of rs 225 and spends rs 15 on its repairs. if he sells it for Rs 300,then find his profit percent?

A)
15%

B)
20%

C)
25%

D)
30%


Correct Answer :

25%


Explanation :

cost price of wrist watch = 225 + 15 = 240
Selling price = 300
Profit = 300 - 240 = 60

Profit % = (profit/cost price) * 100% = (60/240) * 100 = 25%

Dinesh bought two radios for Rs 1920. He sold a radio for a 20% profit and another 20/3 % losses. If the selling price of both radios are same, then find the cost price of both radios?

A)
800 and 1120

B)
840 and 1080

C)
860 and 1060

D)
900 and 1020


Correct Answer :

840 and 1080


Explanation :

Let first radio cp is X second radio cp is 1920-X
As is given ,
X*(100 + 20)/100=(1920-X)*(100 - 20/3)/100
120*X=(1920-X)*(280/3)
360*X=(1920-X)*280
640*X=1920*280
X=840

Hence,second radio cp is 1920-X = 1920-840 =1080
CP of both Radio = 840 and 1080

A milkman bought 70 liters of milk for Rs 630 and added 5 litres of water. If he sold it at Rs 9 per liter, then his profit percentage is?


एक दूधवाले ने 70 लीटर दूध 630 रुपये में खरीदा और उसमें 5 लीटर पानी मिला दिया। यदि वह उसे 9 रुपये प्रति लीटर की दर पर बेचे , तो उसे कितने प्रतिशत का लाभ होगा?

A)
41/5 %

B)
7 %

C)
42/5 %

D)
50/7 %


Correct Answer :

50/7 %


Explanation :

cp of 70 liters of milk = 630
after added 5 liters of water,total solution= 70+5 = 75 liters

sp of 1 liter milk = 9
so, sp of 75 liter milk = 9*75 = 675

profit % =(675-630 / 630)*100 = (45/630)*100 =50/7 %

A shopkeeper sold two mobiles in Rs 2400 each.In this sell he gets 20% profit on one but 20% loss on second mobile. What is his net profit or net loss?


एक दुकानदार ने 2400 रुपये में दो मोबाइल बेचे । इस बिक्री में उसे एक मोबाइल पर 20% लाभ मिला, लेकिन दूसरे मोबाइल पर 20% का नुकसान हुआ। उसका शुद्ध लाभ या शुद्ध हानि क्या है?

A)
Profit of Rs 200

B)
Loss of Rs 200

C)
No profit No loss

D)
None of these


Correct Answer :

Loss of Rs 200


Explanation :

SP of first mobile= 2400 , Profit = 20%
CP = SP * 100/100+P% = 2400* 100/120 = 2000

SP of Second mobile= Rs.1000 ,Loss = 20%
CP = SP * 100/100−L% = 2400* 100/80 = 3000

So, Total SP = 4800; Total CP = 5000
As the CP is more than SP, he makes a Loss = CP - SP = 5000 - 4800 = 200

So, Loss Percent = Loss* 100/CP = 200* 100/5000 = 4%

Cost price of two beds are equal. One bed is sold at a profit of 30% and the other one for 5504 Rs less than the first one. If the overall profit earned after selling both the beds is 14%, what is the cost price of each bed?


दो बिस्तरों की क्रय मूल्य बराबर हैं। एक बिस्तर को 30% के लाभ पर बेचा जाता है और दूसरे को पहले से 5504 रुपये कम में बेचा जाता है। यदि दोनों बिस्तरों को बेचने के बाद कुल लाभ 14% है, तो प्रत्येक बिस्तर की क्रय मूल्य क्या है?

A)

17000


B)

16800


C)

17600


D)

17200



Correct Answer :

17200


Explanation :

Let cost price of each bed = Rs x

Acoording to question,
(x * 130/100) + (x* 130/100 - 5504) = 2x * 114/100
=> 260x - 550400 = 228x
=> 32x = 550400
x = 17200

The total cost of a washing machine with an electric chimney was 57750. The electric chimney was sold at a profit of 34% and the washing machine at a loss of 24%. If the sale price was the same in both the items, then the cost price of the cheaper item was?


एक वॉशिंग मशीन और इलेक्ट्रिक चिमनी के साथ की कुल कीमत 57750 थी। इलेक्ट्रिक चिमनी को 34% और वॉशिंग मशीन को 24% हानि के साथ बेच दिया गया । यदि दोनों वस्तुओं का बिक्री मूल्य समान था, तो सस्ती वस्तु की क्रय कीमत क्या थी?

A)

26850


B)

20900


C)

28875


D)

25850



Correct Answer :

20900


Explanation :

Let, the CP of washing machine be x, and the CP of the chimney will be (57750 - x)

SP of washing machine = SP of Chimney
x* (100-24)/100 = (57750-x)*(100+34)/100
x* 76/100 = (57750-x)*134/100
76x = 134*57750 - 134*x
210x = 134*57750
x = 134*57750 / 210
x = 36850

CP of washing machine, x = 36850
CP of chimney = (57750 - 36850)
So, the cheaper item will be chimney = 20900

What percent profit is made by selling an article at a certain price if by selling at 2/3rd of that price, there would be a loss of 30%?
