Mrs. Gurung allowed 10% discount on her fancy items to make 25% profit and sold a lady bag for Rs 5,085 with 13% VAT. Due to the excessive demands of her items, she decreased the discount percent by 2%. By how much was her profit percent increased?

Answers

Her profit % was increased by 2.77%

Answer:

Solution Given:

discount =10%

profit =25%

S.P with 13% vat = Rs 5,085

S.P+Vat% of S.P= Rs 5,085

S.P(1+13%)=Rs 5,085

S.P=Rs 5,085/1.13

S.P =Rs 4,500

Again

M.P = S.P+discount% of M.P

M.P- discount% of M.P= Rs 4,500

M.P(1-10%)=Rs 4,500

M.P=Rs 4,500/0.9

M.P = Rs 5,000

Now

C.P= (S.P*100)/(1+profit%)

C.P=(4,500*100)/(100+25%)

C.P= Rs 3,600

Again

profit =S.P- C.P= Rs 4,500-Rs 3,600=Rs 900

Again

Due to the excessive demands of her items, she decreased the discount percent by 2%.
