CP * 110/100 = 220
So, CP = 200
To get a profit of 30%
SP = CP * 130/ 100 = 200 * 130/ 100 = 260 Rs.

Discount rate = 500* 100/6000= 8.33%

x * 1.05 * 1.05 – x * 1.05 = 420
implies x = 8000 Rs.

A’s profit = 10,000 x 9 x r/100
B’s profit = 18000 x t x r/100
But the profits are same so,
10,000 x 9 x r/100  = 18000 x t x r/100
so, t = 5 months.

P x R X T / 100 is the simple interest
So, P x (R+3) x 2/100 – P x R x 2/ 100 = 450
Solving for P, we get P = 7500 Rs.

$P (1 + .05) ^ {3}$ – P= 630.5
Solving for P, we get P = 4000

The selling price for the first shopkeeper = 500 x .85 x .9 = 500 x .765
The selling price for the second shopkeeper = 500 x .91 x .84 = 500 x .7644
So, the customer benefits more from second shopkeeper.

The selling price for the first shopkeeper = 500 x .85 x .9 = 500 x .765
The selling price for the second shopkeeper = 500 x .91 x .84 = 500 x .7644
So, the customer benefits more from second shopkeeper.
