1). Profit Blue = 40000 × (10 - 5.5) = 180000
Profit Brown = 50000 × (40 - 25) = 750000
Required % = 180000/750000 × 100
= 24%

2). Manufacturing cost of Green pen = 15
Selling price of Green pen = 22
Profit per pen = 7
Total profit of Green pen = 25000 × 7 = 175000
Similarly,
Total profit of Black pen = 60000 × 10 = 600000
Total profit = 7.75 lakh

3). Total amount = 8 × 30000 + 10 × 40000 + 22 × 25000 + 25 × 60000 + 40 × 50000
= 240000 + 400000 + 550000 + 1500000 + 2000000
= 46.9 lakh

4). Cost price per Red pen = 4.50
Selling price per pen = 8
Profit per pen = 3.50
Total number of pens sold = 30000
Net profit = 30000 × 3.50 = 1.05 lakh
Cost price per Green pen = 12.50
Selling price per pen = 22
Profit per pen = 9.50
Total number of pens sold = 25000
Net profit = 25000 × 9.50 = 2.375 lakh
Total = 1.05 + 2.375
= 3.425

5). Total pens produced
= 40 + 55 + 50 + 90 + 75 = 310 thousand
Average production = 310/5 = 62 thousand
Total pens sold = 30 + 40 + 25 + 60 + 50 = 205 thousand
Average of pens sold = 205/5 = 41 thousand
Required % = 41/62 × 100
= 66.129
= 66%

6).  Average percentage rise in profit of Axis Bank over the years
= (20 + 15 + 25 + 30 + 35 + 30)/6
= 155/6
=25  5/6%

7).  Profit of Axis Bank in the year 2013
= (1.84 × 125/100) lakh
= 2.30 lakh

8).  Required percentage rise in HDFC Bank 2016
= (35 – 20)/20 × 100
= 75
Required percentage rise in Axis Bank 2013
= (25 – 15)/15 × 100
= 66.67
Difference = 75 – 66.67
= 8.33

9).  Profit of HDFC Bank in the year 2013.
= (3.63 × 100/115 × 100/125) lakh
=2.52 lakh

10). Profit of Axis Bank in the year 2016
= (4.52 × 130/100) lakh
= 6.10 lakh
Profit of HDFC Bank in the year 2016
= (4.36 × 135/100) lakh
= 5.88 lakh
Ratio  = 6.10 : 5.88
= 610 : 588
= 305 : 294
