Most Important Questions and solution;
asked in previous year competitive exam


Q 1

Ex. 1. A man bought a horse and a carriage for Rs. 3000.
He sold the horse at a
gain of 20% and the
carriage at a loss of 10%, thereby gaining 2% on the whole. Find
the cost of the
horse.
Q : एक
आदमी ने 3000/ एक घोडा और एक गाड़ी खरीदी ; उसने घोडा 20% लाभ
पर और गाड़ी 10% हानी पर बेच दी; जिससे उसे 2% का
लाभ हुआ; घोड़े का क्रय मूल्य ज्ञात करो।

Solution

Let the C.P. of the horse be
Rs. x. Then, C.P. of the carriage = Rs. (3000 — x).
20% of x — 10% of (3000 — x) = 2% of 3000
x/5  (3000x)/10
= 60
=2x—3000+x = 600
= 3x= 3600
x= 1200.
Hence, C.P. of the horse =
Rs. 1200.

Q 2

Find the single
discount equivalent to a series discount of 20%, 10% and 5%.
Q: एकल छूट ज्ञात करो जो
लगातार 20%, 10% और 5% छूट के बराबर है।

Solution

Let marked price be Rs. 100.
Then, Net S.P. = 95% of 90% of 80% of Rs. 100
= Rs(95/100 x90/100 x 80/100) x 100 = Rs. 68.40.
... Required discount = (100 — 68.40)% = 31.6%.

Q 3

After getting two
successive discounts, a shirt with a list price of Rs. 150
available at Rs. 105. If the second discount is 12.5%, find the
first discount.
Q :
दो क्रमागत छूट के बाद एक कमीज़ के 105/ मे मिला जिसकी किमत 150/ थी। यदि दूसरी छूट 12.5% है तो दूसरी छूट ज्ञात करो।

Solution

Let the first discount be x%.
Then, 87.5% of (100 — x)% of 150 = 105
87.5/100 x (100x)/100 x 150 = 105
100x = (105x100x100) / 150x87.5)
=80
x = (10080)
= 20 First discount = 20%

Q 4

An uneducated retailer
marks all his goods at 50% above the cost price and
thinking that he will still make 25% profit, offers a discount of
25% on the marked
price. What is his actual profit on the sales?
: एक अनपड विक्रेता ने सभी वस्तुओ पर 50% बड़ा दिये क्रय मूल्य से। उसने
सोचा की शायद उसने 25% ही बड़ाये जिससे उसने 25% छूट भी दे दी। उसका लाभ
प्रतिशत ज्ञात करो।

Solution

Let C.P. = Rs. 100. Then,
marked price = Rs. 150.
S.P. = 75% of Rs. 150 = Rs. 112.50.
...
Gain% = 12.50%.

Q 5

A retailer buys 40
pens at the marked price of 36 pens from a wholesaler
If he sells these pens giving a discount of 1%, what is the
profit percent?
एक आदमी ने एक होलसेलर से 36 पेन की कीमत से 40 पेन खरीदे। अब उसने 1% छूट पर पेन बेचना शुरू किया , तो उसका लाभ ज्ञात करो।

Solution

Let the marked price of each
pen be Re. 1.
Then, C.P. of 40 pens = Rs. 36. S.P. of 40 pens = 99% of Rs. 40
= Rs. 39.60.
Profit%= (3.60/36 x lOO) % = 10%.

Q6

At what percentage
above the C.P must an artide be marked so as to gain
33% after allowing a customer a discount of 5%?
वह कीमत ज्ञात करो जिस पर
उसे 33% का लाभ मिले जब वह उस वस्तु पर 10% के साथ छूट भी दे।

Solution

Let C.P. = Rs. 100. Then,
S.P. =‘Rs. 133.
Let marked price be Rs. x
Then, 95% ofx= 133
95x/100=133
x = 133x 100/95J = 140
Marked
price = 40% above C.P.
