A shopkeeper sells a pet monkey at 12%. If he had sold it for Rs 39, he would have made 18%. Find the cost price of the monkey for the shopkeeper Solution: Let Cost Price be 𝑥 12 Profit at 12% profit: 100 × 𝑥 18 Profit at 18% profit: 100 × 𝑥 18𝑥 12𝑥 ⇒100 − 100 = 39 6𝑥 ⇒100 = 39 𝑥 = 39 × 100 6 𝑥= 3900 6 𝑥 = 650 Therefore the Cost Price if the Monkey is Rs 650 Q.11. Tanya bought three Pigs for Rs 250 each. She sold one at a loss of 10%. At what percent profit should she sells the remaining two pigs so as to gain 16% on the entire outlay Solution: Cost price of each pig = 𝑅𝑠 250 Total cost price of 3 pigs = 3 × 𝑅𝑠 250 = 𝑅𝑠 750 Profit on the whole transaction = 16% 𝑜𝑓 𝑅𝑠 750 = 𝑅𝑠 120 Selling price of 3 pigs should be Rs 750 + 𝑅𝑠 120 = 𝑅𝑠 870 Selling price of one pig for the loss of 10% = 𝑅𝑠 250 – 10% 𝑜𝑓 𝑅𝑠 250 = 𝑅𝑠 250 – 𝑅𝑠 25 = 𝑅𝑠 225 Thus, selling price of the remaining two pigs should be 𝑅𝑠 (870 – 225) = 𝑅𝑠 645 Cost price of the two pigs = 2 × 𝑅𝑠 250 = 𝑅𝑠 500 Profit on selling two pigs = 𝑅𝑠 645 – 𝑅𝑠 500 = 𝑅𝑠 145 𝑃𝑟𝑜𝑓𝑖𝑡 % = 𝑃𝑟𝑜𝑓𝑖𝑡 𝐶𝑃 × 100 145 = 500 × 100 = 29% Therefore, the required Profit percentage is 29% Q.12.
