Answer

Given :A trader sells articles X and Y for INR 480 each with no loss or profit in the whole transactionA is sold at 16- % loss,

To Find :B is sold at a profit ofSolution:A trader sells articles X and Y for INR 480 each

-> Total Sell price = 480 + 480 = 960 Rs

Total Cost Price = 960 Rs

As no loss or profit in the whole transaction.

A Cost Price = A Rs then B cost Price = 960 - A Rs

Loss on A = 16 %

SP of A = A - (16/100)A = 0.84A Rs

=> 0.84A = 480

=> A = 480/0.84 = 4000/7

SP of B = 960 - 0.84A Rs

Profit on B = 960 - 0.84A - (960 - A) = 0.16A

Profit % = 100 * 0.16A / ( 960 - A )

= 16A / ( 960 - A)

=( 16 * 4000/7 ) / ( 960- 4000/7)

= 16 * 4000 / 2720

= 23.53 %

B is sold at a profit of 23.53 %Learn More:
