• question_answer Jack purchases a table for Rs. 4500 through auction. He finds that the dealer pays the auctioneers 10% on the selling price and still makes the profit of 10% on the whole transaction. Find the cost price of the table for the dealer. A)  Rs. 3600.5                   B)  Rs. 3681.8C)  Rs. 4100.7                   D)  Rs. 3900.3

Correct Answer: B

Solution :

(b): Let C.P be x 10% on $4500/-=450/-$ So, dealer gets $=4050/-$ Now $x\times \left( 1+\frac{10}{100} \right)=4050$ $=x=\frac{4050}{1.1}$ $=3681.8/-$
