Discount Questions

1. A bookseller marks his books at an advance of 69% on the actual cost of production. He allows a discount of 15% and also given a copy free for every dozen sold at a time. What rate per cent profit does the bookseller make, if books are sold in lots of 12? ( upto one decimal point) 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:32.6
Explanation:
Let the Cost price, C.P of a book = Rs. 100

Given, Marked Price, M.P = 69% more than C.P
= [(100 + 69) / 100] * C.P
= (169 / 100) * 100
= Rs. 169

Discount Amount = 15 % on M.P
= (15/100) * 169
= 25.35 Rs.

Selling price (S.P) of a book = M.P - Discount Amount
= 169 - 25.35
= 143.65 Rs.

Total Books sold = 12 books + 1 book (free copy)
= 13 books

So, C.P of 13 books = 100 * 13 = 1300 Rs.
S.P of 13 books = 143.65 * 12 (Since, one book is sold for free)
= 1,723.8 Rs.

Required profit % = {(S.P of 13 books - C.P of 13 books) / C.P of 13 books} * 100%
= {(1723.8 - 1300) / 1300} * 100%
= (423.8 / 13) %
= 32.6 %

Therefore, Required profit % = 32.6%


2. The cost of 8 kg of almonds is equal to the cost of 50 kg of apples. The cost of 19 kg of mangoes is Rs 456. The cost of one kg of apple is twice the cost of 2 kg of mangoes. What is the total cost of 3 kg of almonds and 4 kgs of apples together? 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:Rs 2184
Explanation:
Given,
Cost of 19 kgs of Mangoes = Rs 456.
So Cost of 1kg of mangoes = ( 456 / 19)
= Rs. 24

Given, Cost of 1 kg of apples is twice the cost of 2 kgs of mangoes
=> Cost of 1 kg of apple = 2 * (2 * 24)
= 2* (48)
= Rs 96

Given, Cost of 8 kgs of almonds = Cost of 50 kgs of apples = (50 * 96)
=> Cost of 1 kg of almonds = ( 50 * 96 ) / 8
= 4800 / 8
= Rs 600

Cost of 3 kgs of almonds and 4 kgs of apples
= (3 * 600) + (4 * 96)
= 1800 + 384
= Rs. 2,184

Thus Cost of 3 kgs of almonds and 4 kgs of apples is Rs. 2,184


3. An article was purchased for Rs 78,350 .Its price was marked up by 30 % .It was sold at a discount of 20 % on the marked up price. What was the profit percent on the cost price ? 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:4%
Explanation:
Given
Cost Price of Article (C.P) = Rs 78,350

Marked price (M.P)= 30% more than C.P
= [(100 + 30) / 100] * 78,350
= 10185500 / 100
= 101855

Selling price = 20% discount on M.P
= [(100 - 20) /100] * M.P
= (80 / 100) * 101855
= 8148400 / 100
= 81484

Profit = SP- CP
= 81484 - 78350
= 3134

Profit % = (Profit / CP) * 100
= (3134 / 78350) * 100
= 31340 / 7835
= 4 %

Profit percentage on Cost price = 4%


4. A dealer purchased LG Refrigerator for Rs. 7660. He allows a discount of 12% on its marked price and still gains 10%. Find the marked price of the Refrigerator. 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:9575
Explanation:
Given
Cost price of the LG Refrigerator = Rs. 7660, Gain% = 10%

Therefore Selling price (S.P) = {(100 + gain%) /100} * CP
= {(100 + 10) / 100} * 7660
= [(110 / 100) * 7660
= 11 * 766
= Rs 8426.

Let the marked price be Rs x.

Then, the discount = 12% of Rs x
= (12 / 100) * x
= 3 x / 25

Therefore, Selling price (S.P) = (Marked Price) - (discount)
= x - (3x / 25 )
= (25x - 3x) / 25
= (22 x / 25)

But, the SP selling price = Rs 8426.
= ( 22 x / 25 ) = 8426
=> x = (8426 * 25 / 22)
= 383 * 25
= 9575

Hence, the marked price of the LG refridgerator is "x"= Rs. 9575

7.  A trader marks his goods at 40% above the cost price and allows a discount of 25%. What is his gain percent? 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:5%
Explanation:
Let cost price, C.P = 100 Rs.

Givenmarked price, M.P = 40 % above C.P
=> M.P = 40% of C.P + C.P
= (40/100) * 100 + 100
= 40 + 100
= 140 Rs.
=> M.P = Rs. 140

Discount Amount = 25 % of M.P

= (25/ 100) * 140
= 35 Rs.

S.P = M.P - Discount

= 140 - 35
=> S.P = 105 Rs.

Profit = S.P - C.P = 105 - 100 = 5 Rs.

Profit % = (Profit / C.P) * 100 %

= (5/100) * 100%
= 5 %
Therefore, Gain percentage = 5 %


8. The marked price of a ceiling fan is Rs. 1250 and the shopkeeper allows a discount of 6% on it. Find the selling price of the fan (in Rs).



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:1175
Explanation:
Given, Marked Price (M.P) = Rs. 1250

Discount = 6 % of M.P
= (6/100) * 1250
= 75 Rs.

Selling price (S.P) = Marked Price - Discount
= 1250 - 75
= 1175

Therefore, Selling price = Rs. 1175

SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:19
Explanation:
Given,two successive discount of 10 %.
Let, x = First discount = 10%, y = seconddiscount = 10%

Total Discount % = (x + y - [xy/100])%
= (10 + 10 - [10x10/100])%
= (20 - [100/100])%
= (20 - 1)%
= 19%

Total Discount % which is equivalent for two successive discount of 10 % = 19%

17. A shopkeeper gives two successive discounts of 10% on a product worth Rs. 1800. Without successive discount find the equivalent discount in percentage to avail the same amount as discount?



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:19 %
Explanation:
Given, Original Price = Rs. 1800

Price after 1st discount of 10% = 1800 - {(10/ 100) * 1800}
= 1800 - 180
= 1620

Price after 2nd discount of 10% = 1620 -{(10/ 100) * 1620}
= 1620 - 162
= 1458

Now, Single Dicount Amount = 1800 - 1458 = 342 Rs.

Required Percentage =Single Dicount Amount /Original Price * 100%
= (342 / 1800) * 100%
= 19 %

Explanation:


19. The marked price of a radio is 40% more than its cost price. If a discount of 10% is given on the marked price, find the gain percent. 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:26%
Explanation:
Let the C.P = 100 Rs

M.P = 40% more than 100.
= 40 % of C.P + C.P
= (40/100)* 100 + 100
=140 Rs.
=> M.P = Rs. 140

He gives discount of 10%,
Discount Amount = (10/ 100) * 140 = 14

S.P = M.P - Discount
=> S.P = 140 - 14
=> S.P = 126 Rs

Profit = S.P - C.P = 126 - 100 = 26 Rs.
=> Profit percentage = (profit / C.P) * 100 = (26 / 100) * 100 = 26%


20. The marked price of a radio is 20% more than its cost price. If a discount of 20% is given on the marked price, find the gain/loss percent. 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:loss 4 %
Explanation:
Let the C.P = 100 Rs.
M.P = 20% more than 100.
=> M.P = 120 Rs.

He gives discount of 20%,
Discount Amount = 20 % of 120 = (20/100) * 120 = 24 Rs.

Selling Price = Marked Price - Discount amount
=> S.P = 120 - 24
=> S.P = 96 Rs

Since, C.P > S.P ---> there is loss in sales.
Loss = C.P - S.P
=> Loss =100 - 96 = 4 Rs.

Loss percentage = (Loss/ C.P ) * 100
= (4/100) *100
= 4 %
Thus requiredloss percent = 4 %
