A dealer 25kg of rice at the rate of rupees 6perVkg and 35kg of rice at the rate of rupees 7per kg he mixed the two and sold the mixture at the rate of rupees 6.75per kg what was his gain/loss in this transaction

Posted by Shahista Anjum (Feb 22, 2017 1:16 p.m.) (Question ID: 2453)

  • Answers:
  • Price of Rice1 = 6/- per Kg & the Quantity = 25 Kg => the total cost = Price * Units = 6 * 25 = 150/-

    Price of Rice2 = 7/- per Kg & the Quantity = 35 Kg => the total cost = Price * Units = 7 * 35 = 245/-

    Total CP = 150 +245 = 395/-

    SP for 1 Kg of Mixed Rice = 6.75 & Total Quantity = 25 + 35 = 60Kg => the Total SP = 6.75 * 60 = 405/-

    Hence the Gain = 10/- (Answer) & Gain % = (10 * 100)/395 = 2.53%

Posted by Shahista Anjum (Feb 22, 2017 12:53 p.m.) (Question ID: 2446)

  • Answers:
  • Total SP for both TV's = 8000/- And if no profit - no loss then the total CP is also equal to 8000/-

    SP for 1st TV = 4000/-  & Profit % = 25 => CP of 1st TV = 4000 * 100/125 = 3200/-

    It means the CP for the 2nd TV = 8000 - 3200 = 4800/-

    Now, SP for 2nd TV = 4000/-  

    Let the loss % = x => CP of 2nd TV = 4000 * 100/(100 - x) => 4800 = 4000 * 100/(100 - x)

    4800 (100 - x) = 400000 => 48 (100 - x) = 4000 => 4800 - 48x= 4000 => 48x = 800

    x = 16.66% => Loss of 16.66% (Answer)

Vinay sells a watch for rupees1140 at a loss 5%at what price should he sell the watch to gain 5%

Posted by Shahista Anjum (Feb 22, 2017 11:07 a.m.) (Question ID: 2438)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. Let Cost Price [CP]= y

    Selling Price [SP] = 1140 
    Loss % = 5%

    We Know

    \({SP} =[{ {(100- Loss\%)\over 100 } \times CP}]\)

    => \(1140 = [{{(100-5)\over 100} \times y }]\)

    => \(1140 = {95\over 100} \times y \)

    => \( y = {{1140 \times100}\over 95} = 1200 \)

    Cost Price = Rs. 1200

    Gain % = 5 %

    New SP = \({1200 \times 105 \over 100 } = 1260 \)

    To Gain 5% He Should Sell For Rs. 1260

Arpit sold a watch at a gain of 5%to mohit and mohit sold it to rohit at a gain of 4%if rohit paid rupees 91 for it then find the cost price of arpit watch

Posted by Shahista Anjum (Feb 22, 2017 10:29 a.m.) (Question ID: 2435)

  • Answers:
  • Let Cost price of watch be Rs.100

    Then Selling price of watch for Arpit = 100 + 5 = Rs.105

    Now, SP for Arpit = CP for Mohit.

    Mohit sold watch at a gain of 4%, Then,

    Selling price of watch for Mohit = 105 + 4% of 105 = 105 + 4.20 = Rs.109.20

    Now, Selling price of watch for Mohit = CP of watch for Rohit.

    Therefore,

    Since Rohit paid Rs,109.20, when CP = Rs.100

    Therefore, Rohit paid Rs.1, when CP  = 100/109.20

    Therefore, Rohit paid Rs.91, when CP = 100/109.20 x 91 = Rs.83.33

    The cost price of watch was Rs.83.33.

  • Let's Arpit paid Rs. x/- for the watch which will be the CP. Arpit's SP will be Mohit's CP as Mohit bought it from Arpit. In the same way, Rohit bought it from Mohit so Mohit's SP will be Rohit's CP.

    => Mohit's CP = x * 105/100 = 1.05x

    Mohit further sold it to Rohit => Rohit's CP = 1.05x * 104/100 = 1.0920 x/-

    => 91 = 1.0920 x

    x = 91/1.0920 = 83.33/- (Answer)

  • Ans. Let Cost Price of Arpit Watch = y 

    Gain % = 5%

    Selling Price for Arpit = \({y \times 105 \over 100 } = {21y\over 20}\)

    Selling Price for Arpit is  Cost price for Mohit  = \(21y\over 20 \)

    Gain % = 4 %

    Selling Price For Mohit = \({21y\over 20} \times {104\over 100} = {21y\times 26 \over 20 \times 25} = {546y\over 500}\)

    Selling price For Mohit is Cost price for Rohit, So

    => \({546y\over 500} =91\)

    => \(y = {250\over 3} = 83{1\over 3}\)

    Cost Price of Arpit Watch\(Rs. \space 83{1\over 3}\)

Posted by Shahista Anjum (Feb 21, 2017 6:18 p.m.) (Question ID: 2401)

  • Answers:
  • I guess your question has two parts:

    The first part is-

    Let the diameters of the two circles be 3x and 2x cms.

    Area of circle in terms of diameter = \( \pi \ d^2\ \over 2\)

    A1 = \( { 9\pi\ x^2 \over 2}\)

    A2 = \( {4 \pi\ x^2 \over 2}\)

    A1/A2 = 9:4

    2) The second part is:

    C = \( {\ 2\pi\ r}\)

    C = 77cm

    \( {\pi}\) r = 77

    2 X 22 X r = 77 X 7

    r = 49/4

    r = 12.25 cm

  • Ans. Let the diameters of two circles are 3x and 2x.

    Radius of first circle = \({3x\over 2}\)

    Radius of second circle = \({2x\over 2} = x\)

    Area of first circle = \({\pi } ({3x\over 2})^2 = {\pi 9x^2\over 4}\)

    Area of second circle = \(\pi x^2\)

    => Ratio of Areas \({\pi 9 x^2\over 4 \pi x^2} = {9\over 4} = 9:4\)

     

    Circumference of circle = 77cm

    Let Radius = r

    then \(2 \times {22\over 7}\times r = 77 \)

    => \(r = { 77 \times 7 \over 2 \times 22} = {49\over 4 }\)

    Area of Circle = \({22\over 7 } \times {49\over 4}\times {49\over 4} = 471.625 cm^2\)
