Answer & Explanation

Total investment = Rs. (7200+200+ 600) Rs. 8000.
Total receipt Rs. (330 x 28) = Rs. 9240.
profit % = [1240/8000] * 100 = 15.5
Suppose he bought 5 kg and 3 kg of tea.
Cost Price = Rs. (5 x 18 + 3 x 20) = Rs. 150.
Sell price = Rs. (8 x 21) = Rs. 168.
profit % = (18/150) * 100 = 12%
Let the cost price of 1 article be $1.
Therefore, cost price of 20 articles = 20 * 1 = $20
The selling price of 25 articles = cost price of 20 articles = $20.
Now, we know the selling price of 25 articles. Let us find the cost price of 25 articles.
Cost price of 25 articles = 25 * 1 = $25.
Therefore, profit made on sale of 25 articles = Selling price of 25 articles – cost price of 25 articles
= 20 – 25 = -$5.
As the profit is in the negative, the merchant has made a loss of $5.
Therefore, % loss = loss/cp * 100
% loss = -5/25 * 100 = 20% loss.
Total CP = (12*4 + 16 *2) = 80
SP of 6 dozen oranges = [(120/100 )* 80)] = 96
sell price per dozen =16
110% of 9O% of 120% of A = 1188.
[(110/100)*(90/100)*(120/100)*A] = 1188 or A = 1188/1000
since A =1188 hence A = 100
A purchased it for Rs. (1000— 110) = Rs. 890.
rate of buying = 7; rate of selling = 10 to gain 3 Rs he must buy 1 kg
for 102 profit he must buy = (102/3) = 34
Total investment = Rs. (120 * 80 + 280 + (40/100) * 120 + 72).
= Rs. (9600 + 280+48 + 72) = Rs, 10000.
Sell price of 120 reams = 108% of Rs. 10000 = Rs. 10800.
Sell Price per ream = Rs. [10800/120] = Rs. 90.
Cost price of 25 kg = Rs. (15 x 14.50 + lOx 13) = Rs. 347.50.
Sell price of 25 kg = Rs. (25 x 15) = Rs. 375.
profit = Rs. (375 — 347.50) = Rs. 27.50.

Total S.P. Rs, 24000.
C.P. of horse =Rs. [(100/80) x 12000] = 15000.
C.P. of cow = Rs.[(100/120) x 12000] = 10000
Total C.P. = Rs. 25000.
Loss = Rs. (25000—24000) Rs 1000.
Let S.P. of 45 lemons is Rs. x.
80 : 40 = 120 : x or 80/40 = 120/x or x = 40 * 120 / 80 = 60
lemons sold For Rs. 60, = 45
lemons sold For Rs. 24, = (45/60) * 24= 18.
