5. 30% loss on cost price is what percent loss on the

selling price ?

Solution

Assume - CP = Rs 100 loss = Rs 30

SP = CP-Loss = 100- 30 = Rs 70

Loss as a percent of sp = 30/70 x 100 = 42.8 %

8. By selling 36 bananas, a vender loses the selling price

of 4 bananas. Find his loss percent.

Solution

Total cost = Total Revenue + Total Loss

36CP = 36 SP + 4 SP

SP/CP = 9/10

On simplifying we have loss = 10 5

18. A man bought an article and sold it at a loss of 5% . If he

had bought it for 10% less and sold it for Rs. 15.30

more, he would have made a profit of 15% . Find the

cost price of the article.

Solution:

Let the initial CP = X then the initial SP = 0.95 X

next CP = 0.9 X ( 10% less) Next SP = 0.95X+15.3 (15.3 more than the previous one)

Profit % = [(0.95x+15.3)/0.9x -1]*100

Ans:Rs 180

19. A man sells his car for Rs. 5000 and loses somethings.

Had he sold it for Rs. 5600 his gain would have been

double the former loss . Find his cost price .

Solution

Let Cost price of the car = CP

CP- 5000 = loss

5600- CP = 2(loss)

Loss = Rs 200

Initial CP = 5000 + 200 = Rs 5200

23./Practice Questions On a certain commodity a manufacturer takes 20% profit,

whole seller 25% profit and a retailer 40% profit. If a

consumer purchased the article for Rs. 350, find out its

manufacturing cost.

(a) 150 (b) 3

Solution:

Let C be the cost of the manufacturer. If the manufacturer sells at 20% profit then he must sell at 1.2C; like wise if the wholeseller sells at 25% profit, he must sell at 1.25 x 1.2C - Thus the final price to the consumer should be 1.2 X 1.25X1.4 X C

1.2 X 1.25X1.4 X C = 350

CP = Rs 166.66

24. A radio is sold at a profit of 25%. Cost price and selling

price both are increased by Rs. 100. If the new profit is

at the rate of 20% , find the original cost of the radio.

(a) 400 (b) 421 © 415 (d) 408

23. A shopkeeper marks his goods in such a way that after

allowing a discount of 10%, he gains 26%. How much

percent above the cost price is the marked price ?

Solution

Let the CP = Rs 100

Profit = Rs 26 therefore SP= Rs 126

But this SP must have been reached after providing a discount of Rs 10%

Therefore the SP must be equal to 90% of the MP

90% OF MP = 126 OR MP = Rs 140

Thus the MP must be 40 % above the CP.

24. A merchant marked his goods at 40% above what he

had paid for them. He was able to sell half the goods at

their marked price, but to sell the remainder, he had to

allow a discount of 10%. Find his gain %.

Solution

Assume that the merchant bought 100 units of goods at RE 1 each.

Total cost of his purchase = Rs 100

MP = Rs 1.4

Revenue earned = 1.4 x 50 (half the goods at the marked price) + 1.26x 50 ( half the goods at 10% discounted price) = 70 + 63 = 133

Profit earned by the merchant = Rs 33 on 100 that is 33 %

25. A trader marks the price of the radio 40% above the cost

price and allows 10% discount for paying cash on the

spot. If he gains Rs. 65, what is the cost of the radio?

Solution

Assume the COST price of the radio = X

MP = 1.4 X

SP = 0.9 * 1.4X

Profit = 0.9*1.4X-X=65

X =65/0.26 = Rs 250

27. A person bought two clocks . The cost price of one of

them exceeds by 1/4th of the cost of other. He sold the

dearer one at a gain of 10% and the other at a gain of

7.5% and thus got Rs. 98 in all. Find the cost of each .

Solution

Assume the cost of cheaper clock = X

The cost of the dearer clock = X +X/4 = 5/4 X

SP of the dearer clock = 1.1 * 5/4 X

SP of the cheaper one = 1.075*X

Total Revenue on both the clocks = 1.1 * 5/4 X + 1.075*X = 98

or 2.45 X = 98 or X = Rs 40

Thus the price of the dearer clock = Rs 50

selling price ?

Solution

Assume - CP = Rs 100 loss = Rs 30

SP = CP-Loss = 100- 30 = Rs 70

Loss as a percent of sp = 30/70 x 100 = 42.8 %

8. By selling 36 bananas, a vender loses the selling price

of 4 bananas. Find his loss percent.

Solution

Total cost = Total Revenue + Total Loss

36CP = 36 SP + 4 SP

SP/CP = 9/10

On simplifying we have loss = 10 5

18. A man bought an article and sold it at a loss of 5% . If he

had bought it for 10% less and sold it for Rs. 15.30

more, he would have made a profit of 15% . Find the

cost price of the article.

Solution:

Let the initial CP = X then the initial SP = 0.95 X

next CP = 0.9 X ( 10% less) Next SP = 0.95X+15.3 (15.3 more than the previous one)

Profit % = [(0.95x+15.3)/0.9x -1]*100

Ans:Rs 180

19. A man sells his car for Rs. 5000 and loses somethings.

Had he sold it for Rs. 5600 his gain would have been

double the former loss . Find his cost price .

Solution

Let Cost price of the car = CP

CP- 5000 = loss

5600- CP = 2(loss)

Loss = Rs 200

Initial CP = 5000 + 200 = Rs 5200

X =65/0.26 = Rs 250

Total Revenue on both the clocks = 1.1 * 5/4 X + 1.075*X = 98

or 2.45 X = 98 or X = Rs 40

Thus the price of the dearer clock = Rs 50

5. The difference between the selling price of a clock at a

profit of 8% and 10% is Rs. 6. Find his gain percent.

Solutions

SP at a 8% gain = 1.08 CP and SP at a 10% gain = 1.10 CP

1.1CP - 1.08 CP = 6

0.02 CP = 6

CP =Rs300

8. A businessman sells 20% of his stock at 10% profit;

50% of the remainder, he sells at 10% loss. At what

percent profit, he must sell the remainder stock, so as

to get 5% profit on the total stock ?

Solution

Assume that the merchant bought 100 units at Re1 per unit

Cost of the merchant= Rs 100

Revenue = 20 * 1.2 + 40 *0.8 + 40 * x= 105

Note :the total revenue for 5 % gain must be Rs 105

x = 47/40 or x =1.175

THERE FORE THE remaining stock must be sold at a profit of 17.5 %

profit of 8% and 10% is Rs. 6. Find his gain percent.

Solutions

SP at a 8% gain = 1.08 CP and SP at a 10% gain = 1.10 CP

1.1CP - 1.08 CP = 6

0.02 CP = 6

CP =Rs300

8. A businessman sells 20% of his stock at 10% profit;

50% of the remainder, he sells at 10% loss. At what

percent profit, he must sell the remainder stock, so as

to get 5% profit on the total stock ?

Solution

Assume that the merchant bought 100 units at Re1 per unit

Cost of the merchant= Rs 100

Revenue = 20 * 1.2 + 40 *0.8 + 40 * x= 105

Note :the total revenue for 5 % gain must be Rs 105

x = 47/40 or x =1.175

THERE FORE THE remaining stock must be sold at a profit of 17.5 %
