Cost price of 1 dozen of pens = Rs.6
Cost price of 50 dozen of pens = Rs. 50 x 6 = 300
Amount of tax paid = Rs.250
Therefore total cost price = 250+ 300= Rs.550

Selling price of total number of pens = 50 x 12 x 1 = Rs. 600
Therefore, Gain = s.p-c.p

=600-550

=Rs 50

Gain % = gain/c.p *100

=(50/550) *100

=9.09%

Total quantity of sugar = 20 kg

Total CP of sugar = 20 * 30 = Rs 600
30% of Total Quantity = 30% of 20

= 30/100*20= 6
SP = 6*40 = Rs 240
SP = 600 * 115/100

= Rs 69000/100

= RS 690
SP of Remaining Quantity = 690– 240 = Rs 450
Remaining Quantity = 20-6=14 kg
sugar per Kg = 450/14

= Rs. 32.14

Explanation:
CP of 1st book= x
CP of 2nd book= 300-x
SP of 1st book= 2x/5
SP of 2nd book=(300-X)5/2
Profit=SP-CP
48=[2x/5+(300-X)5/2]-300
48=2x/5 +1500/2-5x/2 -300
48=(4x+7500-25x/10)-300
48=(7500-21x/10)-300
48=(7500-21x-3000)/10
48=4500-21x/10
480=4500-21x
21x=4500-480
21x=4020
X= Rs. 191.50
The cost of lower priced book= Rs. 108.50

Vinay sells a shirt for Rs 800 and earned some profit. The profit of that shirt is equaled to the 15 times of the loss incurred when it is sold for Rs.360.

Selling price of a shirt = Rs 800;

Let the cost price of the shirt= x
Profit = Rs (800 – x)
Selling price of the shirt = Rs 360;

Loss = Rs (x – 360)
⇒ (800 – x) = 15 (x – 360)
⇒ 800 – x = 15x – 5400

15x+x= 800+5400
16x = 6200
⇒ x = 387.50
cost price of the shirt= Rs 387.50

Profit = 30%
Selling price = (100+gain %) /100*cp

=130*387.50/100

=50375/100

=Rs. 503.75

Given selling price = Rs.30

Profit = 15%

Cost price = 100 / (100+gain %) * selling price

=100 / (100+24)*30

=100 / 125 *30

=Rs.24

When selling price = Rs.27

Profit = S.P – C.P

=(27 – 24)

=Rs.3

Profit % = profit *100 / cost price

=3*100 / 24

Profit% = 12.5%

Let the cost price of the table be Rs.x

Then cost price of the chair = Rs(1500 – x)

10% of x – 5% of (1500 – x) = 1% of 1500

(10x / 100) – (5/100)(1500-x) = (1/100)*1500

(10x/100) – (7500/100) + 5x /100 = 1500/100

15x /100 – 75 = 15

15x / 100 = 90

15x = 9000

X= 9000/15

X= 600

Hence the cost of the table is Rs.600

(or)

Cost price of table + Chair = 1500 = > 2:3

5’s = 1500

1’s = 300

Cost of table = 2’s = 600

Money spent by Rajesh = Rs.300000

Money received by Rajesh = 110% of Rs.300000

=110/100 * 300000

=Rs.330000

Cost price to Rajesh = 96% of 330000

=96/100*330000

=Rs.316800

Rajesh gains = S.P – C.P

=330000 – 316800

=Rs.13200

Let original cost = Rs.100

The cost price = Rs.95

Selling price = 115% of Rs.95

=Rs (115/100*95)

=Rs(10925 / 100)

=Rs.109.25

Required percentage = ((109.25 – 100)/100)*100 %

=9.25%

Successive discount = (5 + 5 – (5 ×5 /100)) = 10 – 0.25 = 9.75%

∴ Discount of an article = 100 – 9.75 = 90.25%

Hence, required S.P = 180 × 90.25 / 100 = 16245/100 = 162.45

According to the question,

C.P1= 1200; Profit = 20%

Hence, S.P1 = 1200 × 120 /100 = 1440

C.P2 = 1200; Loss = 20%

Hence, S.P2= 1200 × 80/100 = 960

Total selling price = S.P1 + S.P2 = 1440 + 960 = 2400

Total cost price = 1200 + 1200 = 2400

The cost price is equal to selling price. Hence, there is no profit and no loss.
