### Question 1

### Question 2

### Question 3

A profit of 20%, as calculated on the cost price, is made by selling an item for Rs. 96. What is the profit in rupees?

**A**

Rs. 16.

**B**

Rs. 17.

**C**

Rs. 15.

**D**

Rs. 18.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

If cost is C, profit is P% and sale is S, then we know that C = $S/(1 + P/100)$. So the profit in rupees would be S - C = S - $S/(1 + P/100)$, which simplifies to ${S × P}/{100 + P}$, which is ${96 × 20}/{100 + 20}$ = Rs. 16.

__Shortcut Method__: If sale is 120, profit is Rs. 20. So if sale is 96, profit = Rs. $20/120$ × 96 = Rs. 16.
