**NOTE: THE MARKED PRICE OF AN ARTICLE IS SAME IN ALL SHOPS**

b)4523

**c)4374**

d)3416

e)4312

## Question 2:

**a) 968**

b)732

c) 1734

d)862

e)1324

## Question 3:

If a new shop D come now and started selling article III with some percent discount whose amount is equal to the amount of discount offered by shop C in article II (given that MP decided by shop D is66 2/ 3 % more than that by shop c ).Find the percentage of discount offered by shop D.

a)18.66 %

b) 18.33%

c)15%

d) 17%

e)23%

ANSWER:

1) Clearly given MP (market price ) will be same for all shops , so lets take market price to be “ x”

Now SP = MP * ( 100 – discount ) / 100

(Or)

SP= x * (100 – discount) / 100

(we all know we sell a product after deducting its discount percentage from the total percentage )

In the given question average selling price is given i.e. 4293 for 3 shops , so the total price of all the three after the discount will be 4293 * 3 = 12879

b) 18.33%

c)15%

d) 17%

e)23%

ANSWER:

1) Clearly given MP (market price ) will be same for all shops , so lets take market price to be “ x”

Now SP = MP * ( 100 – discount ) / 100

(Or)

SP= x * (100 – discount) / 100

(we all know we sell a product after deducting its discount percentage from the total percentage )

In the given question average selling price is given i.e. 4293 for 3 shops , so the total price of all the three after the discount will be 4293 * 3 = 12879

Writing in equation form,

**12879 = 74x/100 + 72x/100 + 66x/100**

(SP of A = (100 – discount ) * x / 100 = (100 -26)* x / 100 = 74x/ 100

Similarly for B and C

12879 = 212x100

x = 12879 * 100 / 212

Similarly for B and C

12879 = 212x100

x = 12879 * 100 / 212

**Marked price (x)= 6075**

SP = 72x/100

SP= 72 * 6075 / 100

Sp = 4374

**Hence answer is option (c)**

### Answer 2

Average selling price of article II by shop A and B is 3608 , so total selling price of both will be 7216

Writing in equation form :

Let “x “ be the market price which is same for all shops , discount rate of A for article II is 14 % , let “y “ be the discount rate for shop B

Also ,

Average selling price of article II by shop B and C is 3300 , so total selling price of both will be 6600

Writing in equation form :

Let “x “ be the market price which is same for all shops , discount rate of C for article II is 28 % , let “y “ be the discount rate for shop B.

Let “x “ be the market price which is same for all shops , discount rate of A for article II is 14 % , let “y “ be the discount rate for shop B

Average selling price of article II by shop B and C is 3300 , so total selling price of both will be 6600

Writing in equation form :

Let “x “ be the market price which is same for all shops , discount rate of C for article II is 28 % , let “y “ be the discount rate for shop B.

So market price = 4400

Discount offer by B can be found by substituting x in any one of the equation

Y = 22%

Disount amount = 4400 * 22 / 100

**Discount amount = 968 , so (a) is the correct choice**

### Answer 3

MP II is the market price of article II and (MPD ) is the market price of D
Given,

**So (c) 15 is the nearest in the answer and the correct choice**
