Solution | Let the C.P. of the horse be Rs. x. Then, C.P. of the carriage = Rs. (3000 — x). 20% of x — 10% of (3000 — x) = 2% of 3000 x/5 – (3000-x)/10 = 60 =2x—3000+x = 600 = 3x= 3600 x= 1200. Hence, C.P. of the horse = Rs. 1200. |

Q 2 | Find the single discount equivalent to a series discount of 20%, 10% and 5%.Q:- एकल छूट ज्ञात करो जो लगातार 20%, 10% और 5% छूट के बराबर है। |

Q 3 | After getting two successive discounts, a shirt with a list price of Rs. 150available at Rs. 105. If the second discount is 12.5%, find the first discount.Q :- दो क्रमागत छूट के बाद एक कमीज़ के 105/- मे मिला जिसकी किमत 150/- थी। यदि दूसरी छूट 12.5% है तो दूसरी छूट ज्ञात करो। |

Solution | Let the first discount be x%. Then, 87.5% of (100 — x)% of 150 = 105 87.5/100 x (100-x)/100 x 150 = 105 100-x = (105x100x100) / 150×87.5) =80 x = (100-80) = 20 First discount = 20% |

Q 4 | An uneducated retailer marks all his goods at 50% above the cost price andthinking that he will still make 25% profit, offers a discount of 25% on the markedprice.
