Note: All the questions are independent from other questions.

b) Rs. 5875

c) Rs. 4790

d) Rs. 5360

e) Rs. 6475

a) Rs. 616

b) Rs. 544

c) Rs. 592

e) None of these

1. If the total discount allowed by the shop P on item C and D is Rs. 1462 and the marked price of item C is Rs. 8500 then find the discount percentage allowed on item D if the selling price of item C and marked price of item D is equal?

a) 14 %

b) 10 %

c) 6 %

d) 12 %

e) 8 %

1. If the cost price of item A sold by shop R is Rs. 16500 and the profit percentage earned by the shopkeeper on selling the item is 2/5 of the discount percentage allowed, then find the marked price of item A?

a) Rs. 22275

b) Rs. 11175

c) Rs. 13397

d) Rs. 12050

e) Rs. 16475

Shivani’s investment in 2004=34000-8000= Rs 26000

Since Shanmu’s profit is Rs 15500, then total profit of Shiva and Shivani together =48100-15500=Rs 32600

Then 15500/32600= (31000*R)/(34000*10+26000*12)

155/326=31*R/652

R=10 months.

From above question, we have R= 10 months.

Then 13950/17000= (31000*S)/(34000*10)

S=9 months.

Let profit of Shanmu be Rs a.

Then a/17000= (30000*12)/ (34000*10)

a=Rs 18000

(i.e) Profit of Shanmu=Rs 18000

From table, total profit of all three partners in 2001=22450

Given that profit share of Shiva=Rs 7500

Then total profit of Shivani and Shanmu= 22450-7500=Rs 14950

Since the difference between the profit shares of Shivani and Shanmu is Rs 550,

Profit share of Shivani=Rs 7200 and

Profit share of Shanmu=Rs 7750 [If the investment is more, then the share of profit also more than that of others]

Then (X+3050)/(X+4315) =7200/7750

(X+3050)/(X+4315) = 144/155

155x + 472750 = 144x + 621360

11x = 148610

X= Rs 13510

Thus, total investment of all three partners=13510+13510+3050+13510+4315

=Rs 47895

Shivani’s investment in 2005=36000*(132/100) =Rs 47520

Let the profit of Shanmu be P,

Then, according to the question,

(47520/38500)=23760/P [Here period is equal, so, the ratio of profit = Ratio of investment]

P= (23760*38500)/47520

P=Rs 19250

Without knowing the shares of investments of Shiva and Shanmu, We cannot find the total profit of all three partners in that year.

Direction (6-10)

Profit % = 15*(120/100) = 18 %

According to the question,

CP*[(100+ P%)/100] = [(100- d%)/100]*MP

2040*(118/100) = (85/100)*MP

MP = 2040*(118/100)*(100/85)

MP = Rs. 2832

Let the marked price of item D sold by shop S be x

The marked price of item B sold by shop S = 2x

Selling price of item B= 2x*88/100

Selling price of item D= x*82/100

So,

2x*88/100 + x*82/100 = 8643

258x/100 = 8643

x= 8643*(100/258)

x= 3350

Selling price of item B= 2x*88/100 = (2*3350)*(88/100) = Rs. 5896

Cost price of item B= 5896*100/110= Rs. 5360

Selling price of item C = Marked price of item D

Discount allowed on item C

= 8500*10/100

= Rs. 850

Selling price of item C= 8500*(90/100) = Rs. 7650

Marked price of item D = Rs. 7650

Discount allowed on item D= 1462 – 850= Rs. 612

MP*(D %/100) = 612

7650*(D %/100) = 612

Discount % for item D = 612*(100/7650) = 8 %

Profit percentage earned on item A sold by shop R

= 2*20/5= 8%

Selling price of item A= 16500*108/100= Rs. 17820

Marked price of item A= 17820*100/80= Rs. 22275
