41. A shopkeeper sells a T.V set on discount of 10% of print price and gains 25%. If the print price was Rs. 20000, find the cost price.

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 14400

Explanation:

Discount = 10%,

S.P = (90/100) x 20000 = 18000

Gain = 25%,

C.P = (100/125) x 18000 = 14400

S.P = (90/100) x 20000 = 18000

Gain = 25%,

**C.P = [100 / (100 + gain%)] * S.P**C.P = (100/125) x 18000 = 14400

42. The labelled price of a product is Rs. 7500. If it is sold at 20% discount and the dealer earns 25% profit, Find its cost price.

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 4800

=>

**Discount Amount=**(20 / 100) * 7500 = 1500 Rs.**S.P =labelled price - Discount Amount**= 7500 - 1500

= 6000 Rs.

Given, Profit = 25 %

then,

**Cost Price (C.P) = [100 / (100 + profit%)] * S.P**=>

**C.P = (100/125) x 6000 = Rs. 4800****Thus, Cost price = Rs.4800**

47. A book is listed at Rs.150, with a discount of 20 percent. What additional discount must be offered to bring the net price to Rs. 108?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:10 percent

Explanation:

Given, List price = Rs 150

Cost Price after 20% discount = 80% of Rs 150 = [ (80/100) x 150 ] = Rs 120.

Sale price = Rs 108.

= [(120 -108)/120] x 100 %

= (12 / 120) x 100%

= 10 %

Cost Price after 20% discount = 80% of Rs 150 = [ (80/100) x 150 ] = Rs 120.

Sale price = Rs 108.

**Additional discount = [(cost price – sale price) / cost price] x 100%**= [(120 -108)/120] x 100 %

= (12 / 120) x 100%

= 10 %

**Additional discount = 10%**
