Question 70

Deepti bought a set of cups for ₹ 175, but then had to sell it later to clear old stocks for ₹ 161. What is the percentage of loss that she had to incur?

Solution

$$Percentage loss =(( cost price - sell price)\div cost price)\times 100.$$ 

$$ Cost  price  of  cups = 175  and  Selling  price = 161.$$

So,

$$ percentage  loss $$

$$=((161-175))\div 175)\times 100$$

$$=(-14\div 175)\times 100$$

$$=(-0.08\times 100)$$

$$=-8 percent$$ (negative sign indicates loss).

So, option B is correct.
