Explanation:
The ratio of the C.P. of the Article M and Article Q is 3:4.
C.P of Article M = 2160 Rs.
C.P. of Article Q = 2160×4/3
=2880 Rs.
S.P. of Article Q = 2880×125%
= 3600 Rs
M.P. of Article Q = 4000 Rs.
Discount % = (M.P.S.P.)×100/M.P.
= (40003600)×100/4000
=10%
A. 12%
B. 15%
C. 8%
D. 10%
E. 20%
Ans. D.
Explanation:
The ratio of the C.P. of the Article M and Article Q is 3:4.
C.P of Article M = 2160 Rs.
C.P. of Article Q = 2160×4/3
=2880 Rs.
S.P. of Article Q = 2880×125%
= 3600 Rs
M.P. of Article Q = 4000 Rs.
Discount % = (M.P.S.P.)×100/M.P.
= (40003600)×100/4000
=10%
Question. 2

B. 2200 Rs.
C. 3500 Rs.
D. 3000 Rs.
E. None of these.
Ans. B.
Explanation:
The Profit % and the Discount % of the Article P = x
Cost Price×(100+x)/100 = S.P.
1800×(100+x) = 1980×100
180000+1800x = 198000
1800x = 198000180000
1800x = 18000
x = 10%
M.P. = 1980/90×100
M.P. = 2200 Rs.
A. 2800 Rs.
B. 2200 Rs.
C. 3500 Rs.
D. 3000 Rs.
E. None of these.
Ans. B.
Explanation:
The Profit % and the Discount % of the Article P = x
Cost Price×(100+x)/100 = S.P.
1800×(100+x) = 1980×100
180000+1800x = 198000
1800x = 198000180000
1800x = 18000
x = 10%
M.P. = 1980/90×100
M.P. = 2200 Rs.
Question. 3
If the M.P. of Article M is Rs. 130 more than the C.P. of Article N and the difference between .P. and S.P. of Article N is Rs. 684. Find the discount % of Article N.

C.P. of Article N = 2560130 = 2430 Rs.
S.P. of Article N = 2430×120/100
= 2916 Rs.
M.P. of Article N = 2916+684 = 3600 Rs.
Discount % = (36002916)×100/3600
Discount % = 684×100/3600
