A.

B.

C.

D.

400%

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Given,

Cost Price of article A = Rs. 130

Cost Price of article B = Rs. 300

Total Selling price = Rs. 910

Profit on article B = 30%

Selling price of article B = 300*(130/100) = 390

Selling Price of article A = 910 – 390 = 520

Profit % of article A = [(520 – 130)/130]*100

= (390/130)*100 = 300%

Sam purchased 20 dozens of toys at the rate of Rs. 375 per dozen. He sold each one of them at the rate of Rs. 33. What was his percentage profit?

A.

5.6

B.

6.5

C.

3.2

D.

4.3

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option AExplanation

Number of toys purchased = 20 dozens

= (20 *12 ) toys (1 dozen = 12)

= 240 toys.

cost price of 12 toys = Rs. 375

Therefore , cost price of 1 toy = Rs. 31.25

Therefore , cost price of 240 toys = 240 * 31.25 = Rs. 7500

The selling price of 1 toy = Rs. 33

therefore, selling price of 240 toys = 240 * 33 = Rs. 7920

Profit made = selling price – cost price

= Rs. (7920 – 7500)

= Rs. 420

Therefore , profit percent = (profit / cost price) * 100

= (420 / 7500 ) * 100

= 5.6 %

A.

Rs 12000

B.

Rs 11000

C.

Rs 13000

D.

Rs 14000

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

Total number of component = 2000.

If 5% compemet found to be deffective, then,

No. of non-deffective component = 2000 – 5% of 2000 = 1900.

So,

Selling price of 1900 component = 1900 * 25 = 47, 500.

This content 25% profit of the manufacturer.

Let total manufacturiing price of the component = X.

SP = 47500

X + 25% of X = 47500

(100X +25X) /100 = 47500.

125X = 4750000

X = Rs. 38,000.

If 50 component ie 1000 components are deffective. then

Total collection = 25 *1000 = 25000.

Loss = 38000 – 25000 = Rs. 13,000.
