SOLUTIONS
S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. x+y-xy/100
10+30-(30 × 10)/100
40 – 3
= 37%

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Increase% =((P + D)  × 100)/(100-D)
20=((P+8)  × 100)/92
92 = 5P + 40
52 = 5P
P = 10.4%

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. 39=x×97.5/100
975x = 39000
x=39000/975
x = 40
S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. 810=1000×90/100×(100-D)/100
90 = 100 – D
D = 10%
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. 10=((-1+D)×100)/(100-D)
-10 + 10D = 100 – D
11D = 110
D = 10%
S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. P%=((108)×100)/90-100
= 120 – 100
= 20%
S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. 25=((P+16)×100)/84
21 = P + 16
P = 5%
S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. 20=((P+10)×100)/90
90 = 5P + 50
5P = 40
P = 8%
S11. Ans.(a)
Sol. CP/MP = (100-D)/(100+P)
CP/MP = 90/112
⇒ 45 : 56
S12. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the market price = Rs. x
After discount of 7% the SP =93x/100
After discount of 9%, the S.P =91x/100
93x/100-91x/100=15
2x = 1500
x = 750
S13. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let mark price = Rs. x
Selling price after 4% discount = Rs. 96x/100
96x/100=1920
⇒ x=(1920 ×100)/96 = Rs. 2000
S14. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let mark price = Rs. x
Selling price after 15% discount = Rs. 85x/100
