Alfred buys an old scooter for Rs. 4700 and spends Rs. 800 on its repairs. If he sells the scooter for Rs. 5800, his gain percent is:



Cost of scooter=Rs.4700
repairs cost=Rs.800
total CP=Rs.4700+800=5500
SP>CP, it is a gain
gain%=gain/CP X 100%
300/5500 X 100%=5.45%
0 0 0
CP of old scooter = Rs.4700
Repairing cost= Rs.800
Overall CP= 4700+800

SP of scooter= Rs.5500
Since SP>CP there is profit

profit %= P/CP x 100
             = 300/5500x100
             =    5.45 %
