**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Cost price of half of the articles=22103/1.15=19220

To make 25% profit we have to sell the remaining articles at 35% profit as (35+15)/2=25%

Thus, cost price of remaining articles= 1.35 x 19220=Rs. 25947

**2) Answer (C)**

CP * 110/100 = 220

So, CP = 200

To get a profit of 30%

SP = CP * 130/ 100 = 200 * 130/ 100 = 260 Rs.

**3) Answer (B)**

Total cost of square box = 20*16 + 5*16 = 320+80 = 400 Rs.

For 25% profit on it, selling price should be equal to 400 * 1.25 = 500 Rs.

**4) Answer (A)**

Cost price = 300 Rs.

Marked Price = 450 Rs.

Discount = 20%

Selling price = 450 – 450*($\frac{20}{100}$) = 360 Rs.

%profit = $\frac{(360-300)}{300} \times 100 = 20\%$

**5) Answer (D)**

Let the cost price of the article be P.

80% of P = 320 => (80/100)*P = 320 => P = 320*100/80 = 400

So, cost price of the article = Rs 400

Profit = 30% of 400 = Rs 120

So, selling price of the article should be Rs 400 + Rs 120 = Rs 520

**6) Answer (C)**

Selling price of the first product = Rs 100

Profit on the first product = 25%

Cost price of the first product = 100 * (100/125) = Rs 80

Selling price of the second product = Rs 200

Selling price of both the products together = Rs 300

Overall profit = 20%

So, cost price of both the products together = 300 * 100/120 = 300 * 5/6 = Rs 250

So, cost price of the second product = 250 – 80 = Rs 170

**7) Answer (B)**

CP = 800

SP = 1180

Profit = 1180 – 800 = 380

Profit % = $\frac{380}{800}*100$

= $\frac{380}{8}$

= 47.5%

**8) Answer (C)**

Let the cost price be x.

Profit % = 25

=> $\frac{15000 – x}{x} * 100$ = 25

=> x = 60000 – 4x

=> 5x = 60000 => x = 12000

SP at 45% profit = 12000 * 1.45 = 120 * 145 = Rs 17400

**9) Answer (D)**

Given Selling Price = Rs.16870

Loss = Rs.1080

Then, Cost Price = Rs.16870+Rs.1080 = Rs.17950

Therefore, Loss percentage = $\dfrac{1080}{17950} \times 100 \approx 6.0$%

**10) Answer (B)**

Given, Profit percentage = 16%

Selling Price = Rs.435

The, Cost Price = $435 \times \dfrac{100}{116} = Rs.375$

New Selling Price = Rs.330

Then, Loss percentage = $\dfrac{375-330}{375} \times 100 = \dfrac{45}{375} \times 100 = 12$%
