Q10. While selling a watch, a shopkeeper gives a discount of 5%. If he gives a discount of 7%, he earns Rs. 15 less as profit. The marked price of the watch is:
(a) Rs. 697.50 (b) Rs. 712.50 (c) Rs. 787.50 (d) Rs. 750 (e) None of these

Answer & Explanation
  1. (b): C.P.=Rs. 100. Then, marked price=Rs. 130.

Therefore, S.P.=93(3/4)% of Rs. 130=(375/400)X130=121(7/8).

Hence, gain=21(7/8)%.

  1. (b); S.P. after 20% discount=80% of Rs. 750=Rs.600

Net S.P. desired=Rs. 540.

Additional discount=[(60/600)X100]%=10%

  1. (c): Let C.P.=Rs. 100. Then, marked price=Rs. 110. 

S.P=90% of Rs. 110=Rs. 99. So, loss=1%

  1. (b); Let C.P.=Rs. 100. First S.P.=Rs. 120

Now, S.P. =Rs. 120, commission=10%

Therefore, Marked Price=[(100/90)X120]=Rs. 400/3.

No, marked price=400/3, commission=15%

Therefore, S.P.=85% of 400/3=[(85/100)X(400/3)]=340/3.

Therefore, Gain%=[(340/3)-100]=40/3=13(1/3)%.

  1. (e); Let the labeled price be Rs. 100.

S.P. in 1st case=Rs. 80, S.P. in 2nd case=Rs. 75.

5 : 100 : : 500 : x. 

So, x=[(100X500)/5]=10000.
i.e Required CP = 80 % of 10000 = 8000

  1. (b); Let original price=Rs. 100.

Final price=90% of (80% of 60% of 100)


Therefore, Single discount=(100-43.20)%=56.8%

  1. (d); S.P. of 40% discount=60% of Rs. 500=Rs. 300

S.P. after two successive discounts of 36% and 4%

=96% of (64% of 500)=[(96/100)X(64/100)X500]=Rs. 307.20.

Therefore, Required difference=Rs. 7.20.

  1. (b);(90% of 80% of 80% of Rs. 20000)=Rs. 11520.

(95% of 95% of 60% of Rs. 20000)=Rs. 10830.

Therefore, Saving=Rs. (11520-10830)=Rs. 690.

  1. (c); Net price after two discounts=80% of 90% of Rs. 10000=Rs. 7200.

Net C.P.=(7200+10% of Rs. 7200)=7920.

Therefore, S.P. =110% of Rs. 7920=Rs. 8712.

  1. (d);  Let the marked price be Rs. x.

95% of x-93% of x=15

2% of x=15
