What was the per cent profit/loss made/incurred by selling an article for Rs. 24000?
Statement I. The ratio between the selling price and the cost price of the articles is 5 : 3 respectively.
Statement II. The difference between the cost price and the selling price is Rs. 9600.
Selling Price = 36,000 From statement I Selling Price/Cost Price =5/4 Cost Price = 28,800 ∴ Profit % = (36,000 – 28,800)/28,800 × 100 = 25% From statement II It is not clear that Cost Price is greater than or less than Selling Price. Hence, the data in statement I is sufficient.
