A trader bought two types of rice therefore total cost of 1st rice is : 26*20=520 and 2nd rice is 30*36=1080 total C.P of both rices is Rs. 1600. Now SP of both rices (26+30)= 56 kg * 30 Rs/kg = Rs. 1680 therefore profit is S.P - C.P = 1680-1600 = Rs. 80 and Profit percent is Profit/C.P *100 = 80/1600 *100 = 5%. Ans. = 5%

What is the total gain or loss percent if a shopkeeper sells one transistor for Rs 840 at a gain of 20%...

Shambhavi S.

C.P=S.P/(1+loss/gain%) Thus , C.P(1+/- loss/gain%)=S.P In first case, we gain 20%, so cp(1+0.2)=S.P, C.P(1.2)=840, solving which we get C.P as 700. Now taking second case of loss of 4%, Cp(1-0.04)=S.P, solving which we get C.P as 1000. Now, total C.P =700+1000=1700, and total S.P as 840+960=1800 Thus, total gain is, (1800-1700)/1700*100=5.8% gain.

Cost price of washing machine (w.m) = Rs. 7660. Let mp of w.m be x therefore acc. to formula s.p will be = (100-discount)/100 * m.p. Therefore s.p = 88/100 x and due to gain of 8 % c.p will be 88/100 x divided by 1.1. Therefore, c.p will be 80/100 x which is equal to 7660 answer will be 9575.
