a) 13

b) 12

c) 12.5

d) 12.25

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

CP * 110/100 = 220

So, CP = 200

To get a profit of 30%

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

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.

Cost price = 300 Rs.
Marked Price = 450 Rs.
Discount = 20%
Selling price = 450 – 450*($\frac{20}{100}$) = 360 Rs.
%profit = $\frac{(360-300)}{300} \times 100 = 20\%$

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

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

CP = 800
SP = 1180
Profit = 1180 – 800 = 380
Profit % = $\frac{380}{800}*100$
= $\frac{380}{8}$
= 47.5%

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

Given Selling Price = Rs.16870
Loss = Rs.1080
Then, Cost Price = Rs.16870+Rs.1080 = Rs.17950
Therefore, Loss percentage = $\dfrac{1080}{17950} \times 100 \approx 6.0$%

The, Cost Price = $435 \times \dfrac{100}{116} = Rs.375$
Then, Loss percentage = $\dfrac{375-330}{375} \times 100 = \dfrac{45}{375} \times 100 = 12$%
