- Option : A
- Explanation :
CP of the merchant who calculates his % profit on CP = (3760/1.175) =Rs.3200

His profit = 0.175 x 3760 = Rs.560

Profit of the merchant who calculates his % profit on SP = 0.175 x 3760 = Rs.658

Difference in profit = 658 - 560 =Rs.98.

- Option : A
- Explanation :
Let CP in A be Rs. x

∴ CP in B = Rs. 0.9x

∴ 0.9x + 15 + 10 = x

⇒0.1x = 25

⇒x = 250

∴Price in B = 250 x 0.9 = Rs.225

- Option : A
- Explanation :
80% of the total proit is divided in the ratio

20000: 24000: 16000 = 5 : 6 : 4

80% of total profit = 5x + 6x + 4x = 15x

Total profit =(15x/80%)= 18.75x

Share of C in profit = 4x + 20% of 18.75

= 4x + 3.75x = 7.75x

∴Share of A in proit = 5x

Share of B in proit = 6x

∴(6z + 5x) - 7.75x = 487.50

⇒3.25x = 487.50

⇒x = 150

∴Total profit = 18.75 x 150 = Z 2812.50.
