let the S.P of each banana be 1, then S.P of 180 bananas is 180

loss = S.P of 20 bananas = 20

we know loss = C.P - S.P , then C.P = S.P + loss

so CP of 180 bananas = 180 + 20 = 200

Loss percent = @@\dfrac{\text{Loss}}{\text{CP}}×100=\dfrac{20}{200}×100@@

after cutting it we will find the answer is 10% loss

loss = S.P of 20 bananas = 20

we know loss = C.P - S.P , then C.P = S.P + loss

so CP of 180 bananas = 180 + 20 = 200

Loss percent = @@\dfrac{\text{Loss}}{\text{CP}}×100=\dfrac{20}{200}×100@@

after cutting it we will find the answer is 10% loss

15*12-->180Rs

180----->180Rs

180----->160Rs (I.e loss of selling price of 20 bananas)

By Alligation Method:

180*180=32400 (C.P)

180*160=28800 (S.P)

-------

3600 (Loss)

(3600/32400)*100=11.11%loss

180----->180Rs

180----->160Rs (I.e loss of selling price of 20 bananas)

By Alligation Method:

180*180=32400 (C.P)

180*160=28800 (S.P)

-------

3600 (Loss)

(3600/32400)*100=11.11%loss

180cp=200sp .

suppose cost price of one article (cp) = 1

selling price of one article(sp) = 180/200 = 0.9

loss in selling one article = 0.1

loss = (0.1/1)*100 =10%

Last part of your calculation is wrong

Let selling price of 1 banana be Rs.1

Selling price of 15 dozen Bananas = 15*12*1 = Rs.180

Loss = selling price of 20 bananas = Rs.20

Cost price of 15 dozen Bananas = 180+20 = Rs.200

Loss percentage = 20*100/200= 10%

Selling price of 15 dozen Bananas = 15*12*1 = Rs.180

Loss = selling price of 20 bananas = Rs.20

Cost price of 15 dozen Bananas = 180+20 = Rs.200

Loss percentage = 20*100/200= 10%

By selling 100 packets of biscuits, a shopkeeper gain an amount equal to the selling price of 20 packets. What is the profit Percentage?

Dev

Let selling price of 1 packet is Rs.1

Then, selling price of 100 packets = Rs.100

Profit = selling price of 20 packets = Rs.20

Cost price = Rs.100- Rs.20 = Rs.80

Profit percentage = 20*100/80= 25%

Then, selling price of 100 packets = Rs.100

Profit = selling price of 20 packets = Rs.20

Cost price = Rs.100- Rs.20 = Rs.80

Profit percentage = 20*100/80= 25%
