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?

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%

we know,

profit or gain= SP-CP

so, CP = SP- profit

but SP=Rs.100 and profit=Rs.20

hence, CP=100-20.

=Rs.80.

profit or gain= SP-CP

so, CP = SP- profit

but SP=Rs.100 and profit=Rs.20

hence, CP=100-20.

=Rs.80.

1. Profit percentage (1870-1700)/1700 * 100 = 10%

2. CP * 120/100 = 8400.

CP = 8400*100/120 = Rs.7000

3. SP = 16000* 109/100 = Rs.17440

Profit = 17440-16000 = Rs.1440

4. SP = 22450 * 90/100 = Rs.20205

2. CP * 120/100 = 8400.

CP = 8400*100/120 = Rs.7000

3. SP = 16000* 109/100 = Rs.17440

Profit = 17440-16000 = Rs.1440

4. SP = 22450 * 90/100 = Rs.20205
