If selling price is doubled the profit triples. Find the profit percent.
A. 66 2/3
C. 105 1/3
Answer : Option B
Let C.P be Rs. x and S.P be Rs. y.
Then, 3(y-x) = (2y-x) y = 2x.
Profit = Rs.(y-x) = Rs.(2x-x) = Rs. x.
Profit % = [(x/x)*100]% = 100%
In a certain store, the profit is 320% of the cost. If the cost increase by 25% but the selling price remains constant, approximately what percentage of the selling price is the profit?
Answer : Option B
Let C.P = Rs. 100. Then profit = Rs. 320, S.P = Rs. 420.
New C.P = 125% of Rs. 100 = Rs. 125
New S.P = Rs. 420.
Profit = Rs.(420-125) = Rs. 295.
Required percentage = (295/420 * 100)% = 1475/21 % = 70% Approx.
The percentage profit earned by selling an article for Rs. 1920 is equal to the percentage loss incurred by selling the same article for Rs. 1280.At what price should the article for Rs. 1280. At what price should the article be sold to make 25% profit?
A. Rs. 2000
B. Rs. 2200
C. Rs. 2400
D. Data inadequate
Answer : Option A
Let C.P be Rs. x.
Then, [(1920-x)/x]*100 = [(x-1280)/x]*100
1920 - x = x - 1280
2x = 3200
x = 1600
Required S.P = 125% of Rs. 1600 = Rs.(125/100)*1600 = Rs. 2000
Sam purchased 20 dozens of toys at the rate of Rs. 375 per dozen. He Sold each one of the rate of Rs. 33.What was his percentage profit?
Answer : Option C
Cost Price of 1 toy = Rs. (375/12) = Rs. 31.25
Selling Price of 1 toy = Rs. 33
So, Gain = Rs. (33- 31.25) = Rs. 1.75
Profit % = [(1.75/31.25) * 100] % = 28/5 % = 5.6 %
100 oranges are bought at the rate of Rs. 350 and sold at the rate of Rs. 48 per dozen. The percentage of profit or loss is :
A. 14 2/7 % gain
B. 15 % gain
C. 14 2/7% loss
D. 15 % loss
Answer: Option A
C.P of 1 orange = Rs. (350/100) = Rs. 3.50
S.P of 1 orange = Rs. (48/12) = Rs. 4
I.e. Gain % = (0.50/3.50 x 100)% = 100/7 % = 14 2/7%
