Mp= marked price
sp= selling price
cp=cost price
p= profit
loss= loss
p%=profit %
discont= d
etc shortfoms in following sums.
2 ans) let us take cp as 100 rs, then
the profit=50/100 x 100 = 50
then mp = cp+ p= 100+ 50= 150
discount =40/100 x 150 = 60 rs
sp= mp - discount = 150-60= 90
loss= cp-sp = 100-90 = 10
loss %= loss/cpx100= 10/100x 100 = 10%
3 ans)d=10/100 x 300 = 30
sp= 300- 30= 270
d = 5/100 x 270 = 13.5
sp= 270- 13.5 = 256.5 rs

pick as bst ans and rate it ..... :)

1.  MP = 250    SP = MP * (100-10)/100 = 225
SP = CP ( 100 + profit%) / 100
CP = 225 * 100 / 125 =  ....

2. MP = CP * (100+50)/100 = 3 /2 * CP
SP = (3/2 CP) * (100 - 40)/100 = 9 CP /100
Loss = (SP - CP)/CP * 100 = 10%

3.
successive discount of x% and y% means a total discount = (x + y - (xy/100) )%
Or,    the SP = MP * (100-x)/100 * (100 - y) /100

SP = 300 (100-10)/100 * (100 - 5)/100 = 27 * 95 /10

4.  net discount of two successive disocunts -   10 + 8 - (10*8/100) = 17.2 %
single offer of 18% is better

5.    SP = MP (100 - 16)/100 = 0.84 MP
SP =  CP ( 100 + 20)/100 = 0.84 MP
CP = 84/120 * MP
MP = 120/84 * CP
Profit if sold at MP :  [ 120/84*CP -  CP ] / CP * 100
= 3600 / 84 %

the same thing profit nd loss
the previous questions
plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz its a request
