1. 12 hrs
2. 17 hrs
3. 9 hrs
4. 5 hrs
5. 7 hrs

Cost Price of item D = MP×100/((100 + %Mark-up) )

= 800×100/((100 + 33 1/3) )

= 800 * (100/(400/3))

= 800 * ¾

= Rs.600

Original Selling Price = MP × ((100 – %Discount))/100

= 800 × ((100 – 18))/100

= Rs. 800 *82/100

= Rs. 656

Original Profit = SP – CP = Rs.656-600 = Rs.56

New Selling Price = MP × ((100 – %Discount))/100 × ((100 – %Discount))/100

= 800 × ((100 – 12))/100 × ((100 – 13))/100

= Rs. 800 * 88/100 * 87/100 = Rs.612.48

New Profit = SP – CP = 612.48 – 600 = Rs.12.48

% Decrease in Profit = ((56-12.48))/56×100 = 78% approximately

Cost price of item A = 2 * Marked price of item C – 150 = Rs.400

Marked price of item A =   5/8× Marked price of item D = Rs.800 * 5/8 = Rs.500

Selling Price of item A = MP×((100 – %Discount))/100

= 500×((100 – 9))/100

= Rs.455

Profit/kg = SP – CP = 455 – 400 = Rs.55

Quantity Sold = (Total Profit)/(Profit/kg)  =  1320/55  = 24 kg

Cost Price of pure item C = MP×100/((100 + %Mark-up))

= 275×100/((100 + 10) )

= 275 *100/110 = Rs.250

Cost Price/kg of the mixture = (Total Cost Price)/(Total Quantity)

= > (5×120 + 15×250)/(5 + 15)  = Rs.217.5

New Discount = 14% + 10% * 14 = 14+1.4 = 15.4%

New Selling price = = MP×((100 – %Discount))/100

= 275×((100 – 15.4))/100

= Rs.232.65

New Profit % = (New Selling Price – New Cost Price)/(New Cost Price)×100

= (232.65- 217.5)/217.5×100

= 6.9 = 7% (Approximately)

Selling Price of item B = CP × ((100 + %Mark-up))/100 × ((100 – %Discount))/100

= 500 × ((100 + 20))/100 × ((100 – 8))/100

= Rs.552

1kg of item B is spoiled out of total 10 kg, so only 9 kg is available for sale.

Total Profit = Total Selling Price – Total Cost Price

= 9 × 552– 10 × 500

= 4968 – 5000 = – 32

= Rs. 32 (loss)

Selling Price of item E = CP * (100+% Marks-up)/100×((100 – %Discount))/100

Selling price of item E = 750* (100+20)/100 * (100 – 17)/100 = Rs. 747

Loss = CP – SP = 750 – 747 = Rs.3

Loss percentage = (3/750) * 100 = 0.4%

Direction (6-10)

Distance travelled by Car C= 4*35= 140km

Distance travelled by car F= 140*10/14= 100km

Speed of car F = 35*120/100= 42km/hr

Time taken by car F to cover the distance

= 100/42= 2(8/21) hours.

Distance travelled by car B

= 20*15/5

= 60km

Distance travelled by car D

= 20*20/5

= 80km

Let the speed of car D be x

Speed of car B= 2x

So,

80/x- 60/2x= 5

160-60/2x= 5

100= 10x

x= 10kmph

Speed of car B= 20kmph

Let the total distance travelled by all the cars be x

So,

Distance travelled by car A= 25*x/100= x/4

Distance travelled by car E= 16*x/100= 4x/25

Time taken by car A= x/4 ÷ 30= x/120

Time taken by car E= 4x/25 ÷40= x/250

Now,

x/ 120 + x/250= 37/4

(25x + 12x)/3000= 37/4

37x/3000 = 37/4

X= 3000/4 = 750

x= 750 km

Distance travelled by car C= 14*750/100= 105km

Distance travelled by car C

= 1250*14/100

= 175 km

Distance travelled by car A

= 1250*25/100

= 312.5 km

Time taken by car C= 175/35= 5 hours

Time taken by car A= 312.5/30= 10 hours

Required difference= 10-5= 5 hours

Let the total distance travelled by all the car be x

So,

Distance travelled by car E= 16*x/100= 4x/25

Distance travelled with 40kmph speed= 4x/25÷2= 2x/25

Reduced speed= 40*70/100= 28kmph

Distance travelled with 28kmph speed= 2x/25

Now,

2x/25÷40 + 2x/25 ÷ 28= 8.5

2x/1000 + 2x/700 = 8.5

14x+ 20x/7000= 8.5

34x= 8.5*7000

x= 8.5*7000/34= 1750km

Distance travelled by car C= 14*1750/100= 245km

Time taken by car C= 245/35= 7hours
