SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. 570.72 = 820 × 80/100 × (100 – D)/100
570.72 × 100 × 100 = 820 × 80 (100 – D)
87 = 100 – D
D = 13%

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. S.P. = 2000 × 80/100 × 90/100 × 95/100
S.P. = 1368

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. 30 + 10 – (30 × 10)/100
= 40 – 300/100
= 40 – 3
= 37%
⇒ 500 × 60/100
= 300
⇒ 500 × 63/100
= 315
⇒ 315 – 300
= 15

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. M.P. = x
2240 = x × 80/100×70/100
(2240×100×100)/(80×70)=x
x = 4000

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. x × 2/100 = 35
x = 1750

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. 100 × 120/100 = x × 96/100
100 × 10 = x × 8
x = 1000/8
x = 125

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. C.P. × 115/100 = 1955
C.P. = 1700
⇒ 1700 = x × 85/100
x = 2000
Discount = 2000 – 1700
= 300

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. 11400 = 16000 × 95/100×  (100 – D)/100
(11400×100×100)/(16000×95)=100-D
75 = 100 – D
D = 25%

S11. Ans.(c)
Sol. 25 + 5 – (25 × 5)/100
= 30 – 125/100
= 30 – 1.25
= 28.75
2000 × (30 – 28.75)/100
= 20 × 1.25
= 25

S12. Ans.(b)
Sol. P% = (108 × 100)/90-100
= 120 – 100
= 20%

S13. Ans.(c)
Sol. Single Discount = 20 + 20 – (20 × 20)/100
= 40 – 400/100
