900 – 675 = 225

225/675*100

= 33 1/3%

Total C.P. = 45

Total S.P. = 60

Profit% = (15/45) *100 = 33.33%

SP of 1m of cloth = 8925/85 = Rs. 105

CP of 1m of cloth = SP of 1m of cloth - profit on 1m of cloth

= Rs. 105 - Rs. 15 = Rs. 90

x*12 : 2x*6: 3x*4

1:1:1

1/3 * 18000 = 6000

SP = 800, Profit = 25%

CP = (SP)*[100/(100+P)]

= 800 * [100/125] = 640

Loss = 25% = 25% of 640 = Rs. 160

SP = CP - Loss = 640 - 160 = Rs. 480

Total CP per shirt = 225 + 1400/160 + 1.75 + 320/160 = Rs. 237.5

SP = CP[(100 + profit%)/100]

= 237.5 * [(100 + 20)/100] = Rs. 285

Loss% = (5/10)^2 = 1/4% = 0.25%

Let C.P = Rs. X

425 – X = X – 355 (or)

2X = 780 or X = 390

2X + Y = 7000

X + 2Y = 9800

Solving (i) and (ii), we get Y = 4200

C.P of 120 reams = Rs. (120 × 80 + 280 + 72 + 120 × 40) = Rs. 10000

C.P of 1 ream = (10000/120) = Rs. (250/3)

S.P of 1 ream = Rs. (108/100 × 250/3) = Rs. 90
