A student buys a pen for Rs 90 and sells it for Rs 100. Find his gain and gain percent.
C.P of pen = Rs.90
S.P of pen = Rs. 100
Gain = SP - CP
= 100 - 90 = 10
Gain % = gain * 100
C.P = 10(100/90)
= 11(1/9)%
Rekha bought a saree for Rs.1240 and sold it for Rs. 1147. Find her loss and loss percent.
C.P of saree = Rs. 1240
S.P of saree = Rs. 1147
Loss = CP - SP
= Rs (1240 - 1147)
= Rs. 93
A boy buys 9 apples for Rs. 9.60 and sells them at 11 for Rs.12. find his gain or loss percent.
The cost price of 10 articles is equal to the selling price of 9 articles. Find the profit percentage.
Let the cost price of 1 article be Rs. C
Let the selling price of 1 article be Rs. S
Therefore, 10C = 9S
1 C = (9/10)S
So the cost price is less than the selling price.
Profit = S.P - C.P
A retailer buys a radio for Rs.225. his overhead expense are Rs15. if he sells the radio for Rs.300, determine the profit percentage.
Radio cost = Rs 225
Overhead expenses = Rs 15
Total expenses = Rs. (225 + 15) = Rs.240
S.P = Rs.300
Profit = SP - CP = Rs (300 - 240) = Rs.60
A retailer buys a cooler for Rs.1200 and overhead expenses are on it are Rs.40. if he sells the cooler for Rs.1550, Determine the profit percentage.
Cooler cost = Rs.1200
Overhead cost = Rs.40
Total cost = Rs. (1200 + 40) = Rs.1240
S.P of the cooler = 1550
= Rs. (1550 – 1240)
= Rs. 310
A dealer buys a wrist watch for Rs. 225 and spends Rs.15 on its repairs. If he sells the same for Rs.300, find his profit percentage.
A dealer buys a wrist watch for Rs.225
Money spent on repairing the watch = Rs.15
Profit = SP – CP = Rs (300 - 240) = Rs.60
Ramesh bought two boxes for Rs.1300. he sold one box at a profit of 20% and the other at a loss of 12%. If the selling price of both boxes.
Let the cost price of the first box be Rs. x
Therefore, the cost of the second box will be Rs.(1300 - x)
Profit on the first box = 20%
Loss on the second box = 12%
The cost price of first box is Rs. 550
Cost price of the second box = Rs. (1300 - 550)
= Rs. 750
The cost prices of the 2 boxes are Rs.550 and Rs.750 respectively.
If the selling price of 10 pens is equal to cost price of 14 pens, find the gain percent?
Let the cost price of one pen be Rs. C
The selling price be Rs. S
Therefore, 10S = 14C
C = (10/14)S
However, the cost price is less than the selling price.
Profit = 140 – 100
Profit % = 40%
The required profit percentage is 40%.
If the cost price of 18 chairs be equal to selling price of 16 chairs, find the gain or loss percent
Let the cost price of one chair be Rs. C
Selling price be Rs. S
Therefore, 18C = 16S
However, the cost price of the chair is more than that of selling price.
If the selling price of 18 oranges is equal to the cost price of 16 oranges, find the gain or loss percentage
S Let the cost price of one chair be Rs. C
Ravish sold his motorcycle to Vineet at a loss of 28%. Vineet spent Rs.1680 on it’s repairs and sold the motorcycle to Rahul for Rs.35910, thereby making profit of 12.5%, find the cost price of the motorcycle for Ravish.

A dealer bought two tables for Rs.3120. he sold one of them at a loss of 15% and the other at a gain of 36%. Then, he found that each table was sold for the same price. Find the cost price of each table.
Given that the selling price is same for both the tables.
Let the C.P of 1 table be x
Then the C.P of the other table be = Rs.3120 - x
Loss on the first table = 15%
Therefore, S.P = 85 x 10
= 0.85x
Gain on the second table = 36%
136(3120 - x)
Since both the tables have the same S.P
2.21x = 4243.20
= x= 1920
The cost price of the table is Rs.1920
The cost price of the other table is Rs. (3120 - 1920) = Rs.1200
Mariam bought two fans Rs.3605. she sold one of them at a profit of 15% and the other one at a loss of 9 %. If Mariam obtained the same amount for each fan, find the cost price of the each of the fans.
It is given that the S.P is same for both of the fans.
Let the C.P of the first fan be Rs. x
Therefore, C.P of the second fan be Rs. (3605 - x)
Profit on the first fan = 15%
Loss on the second fan = 6%
Some toffees are bought at a rate of 11 for Rs.10 and the same number at the rate of 9 for Rs.10. if the whole lot is sold at one per toffee, find the gain or loss percent on the whole transaction.

Shabana bought 16 dozens ball pens and sold them at a loss of to S.P of 8 ball pens. Find:
(i) Her loss percent
(ii) P of 1 dozen ball pens, if she purchased these 16 dozens ball pens for Rs.576
(i) Number of pens bought = 16(12) = 192
Let S.P of one pen be Rs. x
Therefore, S.P of 192 pens = 192x
C.P of 8 pens = Rs. 8x
It is given that S.P of 8 pens is equal to the loss on selling 192 pens.
Therefore, loss= Rs.8x
C.P of 192 pens = Rs 576
Loss = C.P – S.P
The difference between two selling pieces of a shirt at a profit of 4 % and 5% is Rs.6. find:
(i) P of the shirt
(ii) The two selling prices of the shirt
Let the C.P of both the shirt be RS. X
For 1 shirt profit = 4%
Profit % = Rs. 0.04x
S.P = Rs.1.04x
For 2 shirt profit = 5%
Profit% = Rs. 0.05x
S.P = Rs.1.05x
It is given that the difference between their profits is Rs.6
So, 1.05x - 1.04x = 6
= x = Rs.600
Thus, C.P = Rs.600
S.P of 1 shirt 1 = Rs.1.04x = Rs. 1.04(600) = Rs. 624
S.P of 1 shirt 2 = Rs.1.05x = Rs. 1.05(600) = Rs. 630
