a) $11\frac{1}{9}$ % loss
b) $1\frac{1}{9}$ % loss
c) $1\frac{1}{9}$ % gain

Question 5: The price of an item was increased by 10%. This reduced the monthly total sales by 20%. The overall effect on the value of monthly sales is a

a) 10% increase
b) 10% decrease
c) 12% increase
d) 12% decrease

Let original price = $100x$

After 1st discount of 20% =>$\frac{20}{100} * 100x = 20x$

Price = $100x-20x = 80x$

After 2nd discount of 15% => $\frac{15}{100} * 80x = 12x$

Price will become = $80x-12x = 68x$

=> Equivalent Discount % = $\frac{100x-68x}{100x}$ * 100 = 32%

Let C.P. = $100x$

Profit = $\frac{20}{100} * 100x = 20x$

=> S.P. = $100x+20x = 120x$

Discount % = 20%

Let M.P. = $y$

=> $\frac{y-120x}{y}$ * 100 = 20

=> $4y = 600x$

=> M.P. = $150x$

When 30% discount is given => $\frac{30}{100} * 150x = 45x$

=> S.P. = $150x-45x = 105x$

=> Profit % = $\frac{105x-100x}{100x}$ * 100 = 5%

M.P. = 1500

After first discount of 20% => $\frac{20}{100}$ * 1500 = 300

=> Price after first discount = 1500-300 = 1200

After second discount of 10% => $\frac{10}{100}$ * 1200 = 120

=> Price after second discount = 1200-120 = 1080

Thus, the dealer purchased it for 1080 and spends 20 more on it

=> Total C.P. = 1080+20 = 1100

Profit = $\frac{20}{100}$ * 1100 = 220

=> S.P. = 1100+220 = 1320

Let C.P. of 1 article = 1

=> C.P. of 10 articles = 10*1 = 10

which is equal to S.P. of 9

=> S.P. of 1 item = $\frac{10}{9}$

=> profit % = $\frac{\frac{10}{9}-1}{1}$ * 100

= $\frac{100}{9}$ = 11$\frac{1}{9}$%
