Question Detail
A man buys an article for Rs. 27.50 and sells it for Rs 28.60. Find his gain percent
 1%
 2%
 3%
 4%
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
So we have C.P. = 27.50
S.P. = 28.60
Gain = 28.60  27.50 = Rs. 1.10
\begin{aligned}
Gain\% = \left( \frac{Gain}{Cost} * 100 \right)\% \\
= \left( \frac{1.10}{27.50} * 100 \right)\% = 4\%
\end{aligned}
1. A shopkeeper cheats to the extent of 10% while buying and selling, by using false weights. His total gain is.
 20%
 21%
 22%
 23%
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
\begin{aligned}
Gain\% = \\ \left( \frac{(100 + \text{common gain}\%)^2}{100}  100 \right)\% \\
= \left( \frac{(100 + 10)^2}{100}  100 \right)\% \\
= \left( \frac{12100  10000}{100}\right)\% \\
= 21\%
\end{aligned}
2. A shopkeeper sells a transistor at Rs. 840 at a gain of 20% and another for Rs. 960 at the loss of 4%. Find his total gain percent.
 \begin{aligned} 5\frac{12}{17}\% \end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 5\frac{13}{17}\% \end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 5\frac{14}{17}\% \end{aligned}
 \begin{aligned} 5\frac{15}{17}\% \end{aligned}
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
In this type of question, we will first find total C.P. of items, then total S.P. of items, then we will get gain or loss. From which we can easily calculate its percentage.
So lets solve it now.
\begin{aligned}
\text{So, C.P. of 1st transistor = }\\
\left( \frac{100}{120} * 840 \right) = 700 \\
\text{C.P. of 2nd transistor = }\\
\left( \frac{100}{96} * 960 \right) = 1000 \\
\text{Total C.P. = 1700 }\\
\text{Total S.P. = 1800 }\\
\text{Gain = 1800  1700 = 100}\\
\text{Gain% = } \left( \frac{100}{1700} * 100 \right) \\
= 5\frac{15}{17}\%
\end{aligned}
3. If the manufacturer gains 10 %, the wholesale dealer 15 % and the retailer 25 %, then find the cost of production of a table if the retail price was Rs 1265
 Rs. 750
 Rs. 800
 Rs. 850
 Rs. 900
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
Let the cost of Production = Rs. P
Then, as per question,
\begin{aligned}
=> \left( \frac{125}{100} *\frac{115}{100}*\frac{110}{100} * P \right) = 1265\\
=> \frac{253}{160}P = 1265 \\
=> P = 800
\end{aligned}
4. The cash difference between the selling prices of an article at a profit of 4% and 6% is Rs 3. The ratio of two selling prices is
 51:52
 52:53
 53:54
 54:55
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
Let the Cost price of article is Rs. x
Required ratio =
\begin{aligned}
\frac{104\% \text{ of } x}{106\% \text{ of } x} \\
= \frac{104}{106} = \frac{52}{53} = 52:53
\end{aligned}
5. A fruit seller sells mangoes at the rate of Rs.9 per kg and thereby loses 20%. At what price per kg, he should have sold them to make a profit of 5%
 Rs 8.81
 Rs 9.81
 Rs 10.81
 Rs 11.81
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
85 : 9 = 105 : x
x= (9×105/85)
= Rs 11.81

What is the best way to increase your prboelm solving skills? I'm working in a public school and students come up to me with issues with other kids, and some of their issues I just don't know what to do. How would YOU increase your prboelm solving skill if you were in my situation?
