  4. Question 3. A Boy Buys 9 Apples For Rs. 9.60 And Sells Them At 11 For Rs.12. Find His Gain Or Loss Percent ?

    Answer :

    C.P of 9 apples = Rs. 9.60

    CP of 1 apple = 9.609=1.06

    S.P of 11 apple = Rs. 12

    SP of 1 apple = 1211=1.09

    Clearly,

    SP of 1 apple > CP of 1 apple

    We get profit on selling apples = SP-CP

    = 0.022

    Gain% = 0.0221.06×100

    = 2.27 %

  11. Question 8. Ramesh Bought Two Boxes For Rs.1300. He Sold One Box At A Profit Of 20% And The Other At A Loss Of 12%. If The Selling Price Of Both Boxes

    Answer :

    Let the cost price of the first box be Rs. x

    Therefore, the cost of the second box will be Rs.(1300-x)

    Profit on the first box = 20%

    Loss on the second box = 12%

    S.P of the first box = 120×100

    = 6×5

    S.P of the second box = Rs. 28600 – 88×100

    = Rs.28600 – 22×25

    Selling prices of both of the boxes are equal. So,

    = 6×5 = Rs.28600 – 22×25

    = x = 14300 – 110×260

    = x= 550

    The cost price of first box is Rs. 550

    Cost price of the second box = Rs.(1300-550)

    = Rs. 750

    The cost prices of the 2 boxes are Rs.550 and Rs.750 respectively.

  12. Question 9. If The Selling Price Of 10 Pens Is Equal To Cost Price Of 14 Pens, Find The Gain Percent ?

    Answer :

    Let the cost price of one pen be Rs. C

    The selling price be Rs. S

    Therefore, 10S = 14C

    C = 1014S

    However, the cost price is less than the selling price.

    Profit = 140-100

    Profit % = 40%

    The required profit percentage is 40%.

    Therefore, 18C = 16S

    However, the cost price of the chair is more than that of selling price.

    Profit% = 1800−160018

    = 20016

    = 12.5%

    The required profit percent is 12.5%

    Answer :

    Let the cost price of the motor cycle for Ravish be Rs. x

    Loss % = 28%

    S.P = 72×100

    Selling price of the motorcycle for ravish = cost price of the motorcycle for vineet

    Money spent on repairs = Rs.1680

    Therefore, total cost price of the motorcycle for vineet =

    Rs(72×100 + 1680(12.5) + 100(100)

    = (35910)(100)(100) = 72×100

    = 35910000 = 8100x +18900000

    = x= 42000

    Ravish bought the motorcycle for Rs.42000

    = Rs. 215

    C.P = 130100×215

    = Rs. 279.50

    Answer :

    S.P of 90 ball pens = Rs 160

    Loss= 20%

    C.P = 10020×160

    = Rs. 200

    Now,

    S.P of 90 ball pens = Rs. 96

    Profit = 20%

    C.P = 100120×96

    = Rs .80

    Rs .200 is the cost price of 90 ball pens.

    Therefore, Rs.80 is the C.P of = 90 (80200) =  36 ball pens

  23. Question 16. A Man Sells An Article At A Profit Of 25%. If He Had Bought It At A 20% Less And Sold It For Rs.36.75 Less, He Would Have Gained 30%. Find The Cost Price Of The Article ?

    Answer :

    Let the C.P be the article be Rs. x

    Profit = 25%

    Original S.P = x + 25100x

    = Rs. 5×4

    If he purchased it at 20% less,

    C.P = x- 20100x

    = Rs. 4×5

    He sold the article at Rs. 36.75

    So, the selling price = Rs. 5×4 – 36.75

    Given, that he would have gained 30% selling at that price.

    Therefore, gain% = S.P-C.P

    = 5×4 -36.75 – 4×5

    = 25x−16×20 -36.75

    So, gain % = 9×20-36.75- 4×5(100)

    = 18375x = 18375105

    = x = 175

    The cost price of the article is Rs. 175.

  26. Question 18. A Dealer Bought Two Tables For Rs.3120. He Sold One Of Them At A Loss Of 15% And The Other At A Gain Of 36%. . Then, He Found That Each Table Was Sold For The Same Price. Find The Cost Price Of Each Table.

    Answer :

    Given that the selling price is same for both the tables.

    Let the C.P of 1 table be x

    Then the C.P of the other table be = Rs.3120-x

    Loss on the first table = 15%

    Therefore, S.P = 85×10

    = 0.85x

    Gain on the second table = 36%

    136(3120-x)

    Since both the tables have the same S.P

    2.21x = 4243.20

    = x= 1920

    The cost price of the table is Rs.1920

    The cost price of the other table is Rs.(3120-1920) = Rs.1200

  28. Question 19. Mariam Bought Two Fans Rs.3605. She Sold One Of Them At A Profit Of 15% And The Other One At A Loss Of 9 %. If Mariam Obtained The Same Amount For Each Fan, Find The Cost Price Of The Each Of The Fans.

    Answer :

    It is given that the S.P is same for both of the fans.

    Let the C.P of the first fan be Rs. x

    Therefore, C.P of the second fan be Rs. (3605-x)

    Profit on the first fan = 15%

    Loss on the second fan = 6%

    For the first fan, S.P = 115×100

    = 23×20

    For the second fan, S.P = 91×100

    Since, S.P of both the fans is the same

    = 23×20 = 3605 – 91×100

    = x = 1592

    C.P of the first fan = Rs. 1592

    C.P of the second fan = Rs.(3605-1592)

    = Rs. 2012.50

    The cost prices of the both of the fans are Rs.1592 and Rs. 2012.50 respectively.

  29. Question 20. Some Toffees Are Bought At A Rate Of 11 For Rs.10 And The Same Number At The Rate Of 9 For Rs.10. If The Whole Lot Is Sold At One Per Toffee, Find The Gain Or Loss Percent On The Whole Transaction.

    Answer :

    Let the total number of toffees bought be Rs. x

    Let x2  at the rate of 11 are bought for Rs.10,

    Total money spent on toffees = 200×198

    = 100×99

    It is given that x toffees are sold at Re.1 per toffee.

    Therefore, the selling price of x toffees = Rs. x(1)

    As C.P is more than S.P, it will be the loss.

    Loss= C.P-S.P

    = 100×99 – x

    = x99

    Loss% = 1%

    The total loss on the whole transaction would be 1%

  31. Question 21. A Tricycle Is Sold At A Gain Of 16%. Had It Been Sold For Rs.100 More, The Gain Would Have Been 20%. Find The C.p Of The Tricycle ?

    Answer :

    Let the S.P of the tricycle be Rs. x

    Let the C.P of the tricycle be Rs. y

    Gain % = 16%

    Then we have,

    = x= y+ 16y100

    = x = y+ 0.16y

    When S.P increases by Rs.100, we get

    = x+ 100 = y + 20 y 100

    Putting x = 1.6y

    = 1.16y+100 = y+0.2y

    = 1.16y +100 = 1.2y

    = y = 2500

     The C.P of the cycle is 2500

    Thus, C.P of the tricycle is Rs. 2500.

  32. Question 22. Shabana Bought 16 Dozens Ball Pens And Sold Them At A Loss Of To S.p Of 8 Ball Pens. Find:

    (i) Her Loss Percent

    (ii) P Of 1 Dozen Ball Pens, If She Purchased These 16 Dozens Ball Pens For Rs.576

    Answer :

    (i) Number of pens bought = 16(12) = 192

    Let S.P of one pen be Rs. x

    Therefore, S.P of 192 pens = 192x

    C.P of 8 pens = Rs. 8x

    It is given that S.P of 8 pens is equal to the loss on selling 192 pens.

    Therefore, loss= Rs.8x

    C.P of 192 pens = Rs 576

    Loss = C.P –S.P

    = 8x = 576 – 192×200

    = 576 x = 576200

    =x= 2.88

    Therefore, loss= RS.23.04

    Loss% = 4%

    (ii) P of 1 pen = Rs.2.88

    Therefore, S.P of 1 dozen pens = 12x = 12(2.88)

    = Rs.34.56

  33. Question 23. The Difference Between Two Selling Pieces Of A Shirt At A Profit Of 4 % And 5% Is Rs.6. Find:

    (i) P Of The Shirt

    (ii) The Two Selling Prices Of The Shirt

    Answer :

    Let the C.P of both the shirt be RS. X

    For 1 shirt profit = 4%

    Profit% = Rs. 0.04x

    S.P = Rs.1.04x

    For 2 shirt profit = 5%

    Profit% = Rs. 0.05x

    S.P = Rs.1.05x

    It is given that the difference between their profits is Rs.6

    So, 1.05x-1.04x = 6

    = x = Rs.600

    Thus, C.P = Rs.600

    S.P of 1 shirt 1 = Rs.1.04x = Rs. 1.04(600)= Rs. 624

    S.P of 1 shirt 2 = Rs.1.05x = Rs. 1.05(600)= Rs. 630

  35. Question 24. Toshiba Bought 100 Hens For Rs.8000 And Sold 20 Of These At A Gain Of 5%. At What Gain Percent She Must Sell The Remaining Hens So As To Gain 20% On The Whole ?

    Answer :

    C.P of 100 hens = RS. 8000

    Cost of one hen = 8000100

    Rs. 80 C.P of 20 hens = Rs (80*20) = Rs. 1600

    Gain = 5%

    S.P = 105100×1600

    = Rs. 1680

    C.P of 80hens = Rs.(80*80) = Rs. 6400

    Gain on 80 hens – C.P 80 hens

    Gain on 100 hens = gain on 80 hens + gain on 20 hens

    = 80+ S.P of 80 hens – 6400

    S.P of 80 hens = Rs (1600+6400-80)

    S.P of 80 hens = Rs. 7920

    Gain on 80 hens = S.P of 80 hens – C.P of 80 hens

    = Rs. (792-6400) = Rs. 1520

    Gain % 80 hens = 15206400×100

    = 23.75%

    Therefore, Toshiba gained 23.75% on 80 hens.
