Answers:

1: Discount (On Marked Price discounts are offered.)

2: 8%

[Hint: Increase = 162 - 150 = 12. Increase in % = 12 × 100/150 = 8%]

3: 243 [15% of 1620 = 243]

4: Discount = M.P. – S.P.

5: Discount = Discount % of Marked Price (M.P.)

6: Sales tax or Value Added Tax (VAT)

7: A = P × (1 + R/100)

^{n}

8: Sales tax (VAT) = VAT% of Bill amount

9: Conversion Period or Interest Period.

10: Overhead Expenses

11: Marked Price

12: A = P × (1 + R/200)

^{2n}

13: equal, denominator (e.g. 5% means 5 per 100)

14: ₹1000

[Hint: MP = (100 × SP)/(100 - D%) = (100 × 880)/(100 - 12) = 88000/88 = 1000]

15: A = ₹ 9331.20, CI = 1331.20

[ Hint: A = 8000 × [1 + 8/100]² = 8000 × (1.08)² = 8000 × 1.1664 = 9331.20, CI = A - P = 9331.20 - 8000 = 1331.20 ]

16: ₹27,000

[Hint: A = 6,00,000 × (1 - 5/100)(1 + 10/100) = 6,00,000(19/20)(11/10) = 627000. Gain = 627000 - 600000= 27,000 ]

17: ₹8000

[Hint: CP = (100 × SP)/(100+ P%) = (100 × 1,12,000)/(100 +_40) = 1120000/140 = 8000 ]

18: 20/3 %

19: 100%

[Let CP of 10 tables is ₹x. SP of 10 tables would be = ₹2x ⇒ Profit(%) = (SP-CP)×100/CP = 100x/x = 100%]

20: ₹364

21: ₹10,000

22: 400%

23: 300%

24: ₹199.50

SP after 5% discount = 200 x 95/100 = 190

Sale Tax 5% of 190 = 9.50

Amount payable = 190 + 9.50 = 199.50
