Explanation: Q.1.
 C.P. = Rs.5600
 S.P. = Rs.5600x ¾ = Rs.4200
 Loss = Rs.5600-4200 = Rs.1400
 Loss percentage = 1400x100/5600 = 25%.Ans.

Explanation: Q.2.
 123% of CP =SP
 Therefore, CP = Rs.7,011x100/123 = Rs.5700. Ans.

Explanation. Q.3.
The gain is 4 out of 12 articles.
Therefore, gain percentage = 4x100/12 = 100/3 = 331/3%. Ans.

Explanation Q.4.
1st SP = Rs.4500 + 15% of 4500 = Rs.4500+Rs.675 = Rs.5175

2nd CP = Rs.5175.
2nd SP = Rs.5175 – 10% of 5175 = Rs.4657.50
Overall gain = Rs.4657.50 – 4500 = Rs.157.50. Ans.

Explanation Q.5.
Let the CP of the article = Rs.100.
Then labeled price = Rs.130.
SP   = Rs.130- 10% of 130 = Rs.130-13 = Rs.117.
Gain = Rs.117 – Rs.100 = Rs.17.
Therefore, gain/profit percent = 17%. Ans.

Explanation  Q.6.
The total amount distributed among 45 officers = Rs.45x25000 = Rs.1125000.
Let the amount distributed to 80 clerks be ‘x’.
Then   1125000/x = 5/3, therefore, x = Rs.675000.
Therfore, the Total profit = Rs.1125000 + 675000 = Rs.18 lakhs. Ans.

Explanation Q.7.
From the given statement we have,
The cost of 4 gel pens + 6 ball pens = Rs.41.
Multiplying each terms by 9, we get
The cost of 36 gel pens + 54 ball pens = Rs.369. Ans.

Explanation Q.8.
Given that CPs are in the ratio 1:2
Therefore let the CPs be Rs.100 & Rs.200 respectively,
1st SP = 100-15% of 100 = Rs.86.
2nd SP = 200 + 12% of 200 = Rs.224.
Total CP = Rs.300.  Total SP = 85+224 = Rs.309.
Profit = Rs.309-300 = Rs.9.
Profit percent = 9x100/300 = 3% profit. Ans.

Explanation Q.9.
Let ‘x’ be the CP of the article.
i.e. Rs.675-x = 2(x-435)
675-x = 2x-870
675+870 = 3x, therefore, x=1545/3  =Rs.515. Ans.

Explanation Q.10.
Price of 15 kgs of rice at Rs.26/kg = 15x26 = Rs.390
Price of 8 kgs of pulses at Rs.26/kg = 8x26 = Rs.208
Therefore, Total amount = Rs.390+Rs.208 = Rs.598.Ans.
