Total amount = 20 x 7 + 8 x 22 + 6 x 175 + 7 x 43
= 140 + 176 + 900 + 301
= Rs1,667

Marked price = 78,350 + 30% of 78,350 = Rs 1,01,855
Price after discount = 101855 -20% of 101855 = Rs 81,484
Profit = Rs 3,134

The profits are divided in the ratio of [Investment X time period]
So, this number for A is 30k X 12 = 360k
For B it is 24k X 4 + 18k X 12 = 240k
For C it is 42k X 4 + 32k X 8 = 424kSo, B’s share in the profit will be $\frac{240}{360+240+424} \times 11960 = 2803.125 \approx 2803$

Loss percent
= [$\frac{loss}{10}$]2 %
= [$\frac{12}{10}$]2 %
= $\frac{36}{25}$ %
= 1$\frac{11}{25}$ %

CP = (100Ã—SP)/((100+gain%))=(100Ã—84)/120= Rs. 70

Gain% = (1000-960)/960 x 100 = 25/6=4 1/6%

Let the marked price be Rs. 100.
Then cost price = 100 – 40 = Rs. 60
Selling price = 100+ 50 = Rs. 150
Profit = 150 – 60 = 90
Profit%=90/60Ã—100=150%

As we know that the profit will be distributed in the ratio of (money invested)*(Duration for which money was invested). Hence, Ratio will be = 12000*12 : 15000*12 : 20000*9 = 4:5:5

The total amount distributed among officers = 45*25000= 11,25,000 If the total amount is x, then this amount is (5/8)x=11,25,000 Hence, x=18,00,000

Let the cost price be x.
As per given condition, the labelled price will be 1.3x.
Discounted price will be 0.9*1.3x= 1.17x
Now, Profit = Price at which item was sold – Cost Price = 1.17x – x = .17x = 17% of Cost price.
Hence, profit is 17%.

Selling price is Rs 15 and Profit is 25%=> Cost Price = $\frac{15}{1.25}$ = Rs 12=> In every litre of solution, there is Rs 12 worth milk.But the actual cost of milk is Rs 16.=> Ratio = 12 : 4 = 3 : 1

50% of the goods are sold at 12%.=> 0.5(x) + 0.5(12) = 0.18=> 0.5x = 0.12=> x = 0.24

Let the CP of an article be x. Loss% =$\frac{CP-SP}{CP}$ 0.55 = $\frac{x-9549}{x}$ 0.55 = 1-$\frac{9549}{x}$ x = 9549/(1- 0.55) = 9549/0.45 = 21220.
Let the cost price of the article is 100 In order to earn 30% profit, the shopkeeper will sell it for 130 Discount = 10% of 130 = 13 SP = 130-13 = 117 Profit % =$\frac{117-100}{100}*100$ = 17%
