CP*[(100 + Mark up %)/100] = MP

1500*(120/100) = MP

MP = 1800

SP = 1800*(85/100)*(90/100) = Rs. 1377

MP = 2CP – 280

MP*(80/100) = 800

MP = 1000

1000 = 2CP – 280

1280 = 2CP

CP = 1280/2 = Rs. 640

According to the question,

1500*(100 + x)/100 + 1500*(80/100) = 3000

1500 + 15x + 1200 = 3000

15x + 2700 = 3000

15x = 300

X = 20

Let Santhosh pay for the chair be Rs. x,

(x + 100)*(120/100)*(90/100)*(110/100) = 1782

(x + 100) = (1782*100*100*100)/(120*90*110)

(x + 100) = 1500

X = 1500 – 100 = Rs. 1400

Let us take cost price be x

SP = CP * 106/100 = 954

CP = 900

New SP = 900* 114/100 = 1026

Shortcut:

(100+ Profit %)/SP1 = (100 + Profit %)/SP2

(100+ 6)/954 = (100+ 14)/SP2

(106/954) = (114/SP2)

SP2 = 114*(954/106) = Rs. 1026

(125/100)*CP1 = 1200

CP1 = 1200*(4/5) = Rs. 960

(75/100)*CP2 = 1200

CP2 = 1200*(4/3) = Rs. 1600

Overall profit = (960 + 1600) – (1200 + 1200) = 160

Profit % = (160/2560)*100 = 6.25 %

Let the cost price be Rs. x,

According to the question,

(106% of x) – (90 1/2% of x) = 46.50

15 1/2% of x = 46.50

x = (46.50 ∗ 100 ∗ 2/31) = 300

Cost price of the article = Rs. 300

Let the cost price of whole items be Rs. x,

CP of 1/2 of the items = Rs. x/2

CP of 1/4 of the items = Rs. x/4

Total SP = Rs. [(125% of x/2) + (80% of x/4) + x/4]

= > Rs. (5x/8 + x/5 + x/4)

= > Rs. 43x/40

Gain = Rs. (43x/40 – x)

= > Rs. 3x/40

Gain % = [(3x/40)/x]*100 = 7.5 %

Selling price of Sofa = 8100*(115/100) = Rs. 9315

Marked price*(90/100) = 9315

Marked price of Sofa = 9315*(100/90) = Rs. 10350

According to the question,

Profit = Loss

SP1 – CP = CP – SP2

2540 – CP = CP – 1640

2CP = 1640 + 2540

CP = 4180/2 = Rs. 2090

SP = 2090*(130/100) = Rs. 2717

Shortcut:

CP = (1640+2540)/2 = 4180/2

= Rs. 2090

SP = 2090 * 130/100 = Rs.2717
