Question 1 of 5
1. Question
A man sold an item for Rs.6750 at a loss of 25%. What will be the selling price of same item if he sells it at a profit of 15%?
Correct
Solution (b)
Let the cost price of the item be Rs.100 so the selling price will be Rs.75
When the Selling price is Rs.75 Cost price is Rs.100
When the Selling price will be Rs.1 then cost price will be Rs.(100/75)
When the selling price is Rs.6750 cost price should be Rs.(100/75)*6750 which is Rs.9000.
Now,
When cost price is Rs.100 selling price is Rs.115
When cost price is Rs.1, selling price will be Rs.(115/100)
So, if cost price Rs.9000 selling price is Rs.(115/100)*9000 = Rs.10,350
Incorrect
Solution (b)
Let the cost price of the item be Rs.100 so the selling price will be Rs.75
When the Selling price is Rs.75 Cost price is Rs.100
When the Selling price will be Rs.1 then cost price will be Rs.(100/75)
When the selling price is Rs.6750 cost price should be Rs.(100/75)*6750 which is Rs.9000.
Now,
When cost price is Rs.100 selling price is Rs.115
When cost price is Rs.1, selling price will be Rs.(115/100)
So, if cost price Rs.9000 selling price is Rs.(115/100)*9000 = Rs.10,350

Question 2 of 5
2. Question
Two students appeared in an examination. One of them secured 12 marks more than the other and his marks was 60% of the sum of their marks. The marks obtained by them are:
Correct
Solution (c)
Let their marks be (x + 12) and x
Then, x+12 = (60/100)* (x+x+12)
100x+1200 = 60(2x+12)
1200 720 = 120x100x
480 = 20x
x = 480/20 = 24
So, their marks are (24+12), 24 i.e., 24 & 36
Incorrect
Solution (c)
Let their marks be (x + 12) and x
Then, x+12 = (60/100)* (x+x+12)
100x+1200 = 60(2x+12)
1200 720 = 120x100x
480 = 20x
x = 480/20 = 24
So, their marks are (24+12), 24 i.e., 24 & 36
