Directions (1-5):

Series I,

3 * 9 – 9 = 18

18 * 8 – 8 = 136

136 * 7 – 7 = 945

945 * 6 – 6 = 5664

5664 * 5 – 5 = 28315

Series II,

9 is the 1st term.

9 * 9 – 9 = 72

72 * 8 – 8 = 568

568 * 7 – 7 = 3969

3969 is the 4th term

Series I,

8 * 13 = 8

8 * 23 = 64

64 * 33 = 1728

1728 * 43 = 110592

Series II,

2 is the 1st term

2 * 13 = 2

2 * 23 = 16

16 * 33 = 432

432 is the 4th term

12 + 32 = 44

44 + 64 = 108

108 + 128 = 236

236 + 256 = 492

492 + 512 = 1004

855Ã·3 + 3 = 288

288Ã·3 + 3 = 99

99Ã·3 + 3 = 36

36Ã·3 + 3 = 15

15Ã·3 + 3 = 8

Series I,

5 * 6 + 1 = 31

31 * 5 + 2 = 157

157 * 4 + 3 = 631

631 * 3 + 4 = 1897

1897 * 2 + 5 = 3799

Series II,

1 is the 1st term.

1 * 6 + 1 = 7

7 * 5 + 2 = 37

37 * 4 + 3 = 151

151 * 3 + 4 = 457

457 * 2 + 5 = 919

919 * 1 + 6 = 925

925 is the 7th term.

Directions (6-10):

Table = 500 * 90/100 = 450

Amount paid = 92/100 * (((100 – x)/100 * 14000) + 450)

12000 = (92/100)(140(100 – x) + 450)

12000 = (92/100)(14000 – 140x + 450)

12000 = 92/100(14450 – 140x)

1200000 = 1329400 – 12880x

12880x = 129400

x = 10%

Marked price of mobile = Rs.4500

Selling price of mobile = 4500 * 80/100 = Rs.3600

Cost price of mobile = 4500 * 100/120 = 3750

Cost price of laptop = Rs.10000

Marked price of laptop = Rs.10000 * 120/100 = 12000

Selling price of laptop = 12000 * 75/100 = 9000

Total cost price = 3750 + 10000 = 13750

Total selling price = 3600 + 9000 = 12600

Required loss percent = [(13750 – 12600)/13750] * 100â‰ˆ8%

Discount twice = 480 * 85/100 * 85/100 = Rs.336

CP he makes 20% profit = 336 * 100/120 = 280

SP of discount allows once = 480 * 85/100 = 408

Profit percentage = [(408 – 280)/280] * 100 = 41%

Marked price of Book = 150x

Selling price of Book = 95/100 * 150x = 142.5x

Discount amount = 150x – 142.5x = 150

7.5x = 150

x = 20

Cost price of Book = 142.5x – 50 = 2800

MP of Book = 150 * 20 = 3000

SP of Book = 142.5 * 20 = 2850

Marked price percentage = ((3000 – 2800)/3000) * 100 = 20/3%

After interchange of marked up percentage and discount percentage,

MP of Book = 105/100 * 2800 = 2940

SP of Book = (100 – 20/3)/100 * 2940 = 2744

Difference = 2850 – 2744 = 106

CP of mobile = 26000 * 100/130 = 20000

Marked price = 20000 * 100/80 = 25000
