2. Anjal Saikia says:

1. One item is sold on 10% loss, if the item would sold in Rs.70 more then 4% will be profit, now what is the sell price?

• Prashant says:

Let the amount be = 100
So if the article is sold for 10% loss the SP will be 90.

As per question if the article is sold for 70 more so, 90+70=160

Hence 160 is the selling price.

• shreya says:

CP*(1-10/100)= SP // since the article was sold for 10% loss
SP’=SP+70 //Selling price if the article was sold by 70 more than its actual selling price
SP’=(1+4/100)CP //selling price with 4% profit over cost price

on solving the equations , selling price would be Rs.450.

8. sameer says:

By selling a T.V. for Rs 8000, a shopkeeper loses 20% of his cost.If he sells it for Rs 11000, what profit or loss would be there for him?

• Anonymous says:

SP=8000
Loss=20%

CP= (SP X 100) / (100 – Loss%)
=(8000 X 100) / (100 – 20)
=800000 / 80
=10000

If he sells it for Rs.11000, then

Profit = ((SP – CP) X 100) / CP
=((11000 – 10000) X 100) / 10000
=(1000 X 100) / 10000
=100000 / 10000
=10%

Profit = 10%

: A trader sold a pair of shoes for C 2,800.00 making a loss of 20%
on his cost price. Find his loss as a percentage of his selling price.

10. Dharmendra says:

SP=(90/100)CP—–1
Now he said if the item would sold 70 more on SP.
i.e Now (SP+70)=(104/100)CP—–2
Now substitute 1 in 2
Then (90/100)CP+7=(104/100)CP—–3
From eqn 3 we get CP=500
if u substitue CP in eqn 1 we get SP=450
