Let he buys x apples at the rate 4/3 and x apples at the rate of 7/4
so cost price  = 4x/3 + 7x/4 = 37x/12
and selling price = (9/5)*2x = 18x/5
% gain = [(37x/12 – 18x/5)/(37x/12)]*100 = 17% (approx)

A dealer sold two ACs at Rs. 5940 each. On selling one AC he gained 10% and on selling the other he lost 10%. Find the dealer’s gain or loss percent?

Detailed Solution for Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 3

5940 = (110/100)*cp1, cp1 = 5400
5940 = (90/100)*cp2, cp2 = 6600
So, CP = 5400 + 6600 = 12000
And selling price = 5940 + 5940 = 11880
% loss = (120/12000)*100 = 1

cash sales = 45 and credit sales =15
(120/100)*cp*90/100*45 + (120/100)*cp*95/100*15 – 60*cp = 11400
Cp = 2000

A sold his bike to B at a loss of 20%. B spent rupees 1500 on its repair and sold the bike to C for 42000, thereby making a profit of 5%. Find the cost of bike for A?

Detailed Solution for Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 6

Cost of A is CP,
cost for B = (80/100)*cp + 1500
selling price of B = 42000 = (105/100)*[(80/100)*cp + 1500] cp = 48125

A wholesaler sells 30 pens at the marked price of 20 pens to the retailer. The retailer in turns sells them at the marked price. Determine the loss or gain percent?

Cp =x
So % profit = [(3x/2 – x)/x]*100 = 50%

Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 13

If a trader estimates his loss as 10% of the selling price, what is his real loss percent?

Detailed Solution for Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 13

(cp – sp)/sp = 10/100
10cp = 11sp, now let cp = 1
So cp of 11 items = 11 and sp = 10, loss percent = (1/11)*100 = 100/11 %

Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 14

What will be percentage profit after selling an article at a certain price if there is a loss of 30% when the article is sold at 1/3 of the previous selling price?

Detailed Solution for Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 14

Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 15

A dealer sells a table for Rs 460 making a profit of 10%. He sells another table at a loss of 5% and on the whole he makes neither profit nor loss. What did the second table cost him

Detailed Solution for Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 15

no loss/ no profit means cp = sp i.e. cp1 + cp2 = sp1 + sp2
sp1 = 460 = (115/100)*cp1
sp2 = (95/100)*cp2
(460*100)/115 + cp2 = 460 + (95/100)*cp2
Cp2 = 836.36

Detailed Solution for Test: Profit and Loss- 5 - Question 16

let cost price of goat = a and cost price of cow = b
800 = (120/100)*a + (125/100)*b
820 = (125/100)*a + (120/100)*b
Solve both equation to get a and b

cost price of each chair = 250 + 3000/120 = 275
