## If the cost price is 25% of the selling price. Then what is the profit percent?

A) 150%

B) 200%

C) 300%

D) 350%

Let the S.P = 100
then C.P = 25

Profit = 75

Profit% = 75/25 * 100 = 300%

## A toy is sold for Rs. 220, what was the cost if the rate of profit was 10% of the cost?

A) Rs.196

B) Rs.198

C) Rs.200

D) Rs.210

Given Data

S.P = 220     Gain=10%  C.P=?

We know that :

S.P=[ 100 +Gain]/100 * C.P

We Have to find C.P, so re-arrange formula

⇒ C.P= 100/[ 100 +Gain] * S.P

Putting given data:

⇒ C.P= 100/[ 100 +10] * 220

⇒ C.P=200

## A man bought some toys at the Rs. 60 and sold them Rs.50. Find his loss percent?

A) 10%

B) 16.6%

C) 25.8%

D) 30%

As S.P<C.P , so we get loss

Loss  = C.P-S.P

=60-50

= 10

Now,

Loss%= [ 100*Loss]/C.P

=[ 100*10]/60

=16.6%

## An article is purchased for Rs. 450 and sold for Rs. 495. Find the gain percent?

A) 10%

B) 20%

C) 25%

D) 30%

Given that: C.P=450 & S.P=495

When S.P is greater than C.P, we get Profit

Profit=S.P-C.P

Profit=495-450

Profit = 45

Now ,

Gain% = [100*Gain]/C.P

= [100*45]/450

= 10%
