Practice set 9.1 PAGE NO: 55

**1. If marked price = Rs 1700, selling price = Rs 1540 then find the discount.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Marked Price = Rs 1700

Selling Price = Rs 1540

By using the formula,

Selling price = Marked price â€“ Discount

So,

Discount = Marked Price â€“ Selling Price

Discount = 1700 â€“ 1540

= Rs 160

âˆ´ The discount is Rs 160.

**2. If marked price = Rs 990 and percentage of discount is 10, then find the selling price.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Marked price = Rs 990

discount = 10%

Let the percentage of discount be x

âˆ´ x = 10%

By using the formula,

Discount = (Marked price Ã— x) / 100

= (990 Ã— 10) / 100

= Rs 99

Now,

Selling price = Marked price â€“ Discount

= 990 â€“ 99

= Rs 891

âˆ´ The selling price is Rs 891.

**3. If selling price = Rs 900. Discount is 20 %, then find the marked price.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Selling Price = Rs 900

Discount = 20%

Now, let us consider the marked price as Rs x.

Given discount is 20% on the marked price.

Discount = 0.2x

By using the formula,

Selling Price = Marked Price â€“ Discount

900 = x â€“ 0.2x

900 = 0.8x

x = 900/0.8

= Rs 1125

âˆ´ The marked price is Rs 1125.

**4. The marked price of the fan is 3000 rupees. Shopkeeper gave 12% discount on it. Find the total discount and selling price of the fan.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Marked Price = Rs 3000

Discount = 12%

Given discount is 12% on the marked price.

Discount = (12/100) Ã— 3000

= Rs 360

Hence, the discount is Rs 360.

Now, by using the formula,

Selling Price = Marked Price â€“ Discount

= 3000 â€“ 360

= Rs 2640

âˆ´ The selling price is Rs 2640.

**5. The marked price of a mixer is 2300 rupees. A customer purchased it for Rs.1955. Find percentage of discount offered to the customer.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Marked Price = Rs 2300

Selling Price = Rs 1955

By using the formula,

Discount = Marked Price â€“ Selling Price

= 2300 â€“ 1955

= Rs 345

Now, let us consider the percentage of discount as x.

Then,

x/100 = Discount/Marked Price

x/100 = 345/2300

x = (345 Ã— 100)/2300

= 15

âˆ´ The percentage of discount offered is 15%.

**6. A shopkeeper gives 11% discount on a television set, hence the cost price of it is Rs. 22,250. Then find the marked price of the television set.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Discount = 11%

Cost Price = Rs 22250

Let us consider the marked price be Rs x.

It is given discount is 11% on the marked price.

Discount = 0.11x

We also know the cost price is Rs 22250 after a discount of 11% on the marked price.

x â€“ 0.11x = 22250

0.89x = 22250

x = 22250/0.89

= 25000

âˆ´ The marked price is Rs 25000.

**7. After offering discount of 10% on marked price, a customer gets total discount of 17 rupees. To find the cost price for the customer, fill in the following boxes with appropriate numbers and complete the activity.**

**Suppose, marked price of the item = 100 rupees**

**Solution:**

**8. A shopkeeper decides to sell a certain item at a certain price. He tags the price on the item by increasing the decided price by 25%. While selling the item, he offers 20% discount. Find how many more or less percent he gets on the decided price.**

**Solution:**

Given:

price increase = 25%,

discount offered = 20%

Let the decided price be Rs 100

So, Increase in price = Rs 25

Shopkeeper marks the price = 100 + 25

= Rs 125

âˆ´ marked price = Rs 125

Let the percentage of discount be x

x = 20%

Discount = (marked price Ã— x) / 100

= (125 Ã— 20) / 100

= 2500/100

= Rs 25

So, Selling price = Marked price â€“ Discount

= Rs 125 â€“ Rs 25

= Rs 100

If the decided price is Rs 100, then shopkeeper gets Rs 100.

âˆ´ The shopkeeper gets neither profit nor loss than the decided price i.e. he gets 0% profit / loss.

Practice set 9.2 PAGE NO: 55

**1. **

**Solution:**

Given:

Selling price of the books = Rs 4500

Rate of commission = 15%

By using the formula,

Commission = Commission RateÂ Ã—Â Selling Price

Commission obtained = 15% of selling price

= (15/100) Ã— (4500)

= 15 Ã— 45

= 675 Rupees.

âˆ´ The total commission obtained by John is Rs 675.

**2. Rafique sold flowers worth Rs 15,000 by giving 4% commission to the agent. Find the commission he paid. Find the amount received by Rafique.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Selling Price = Rs 15000

Commission rate = 4%

By using the formula,

Commission = Commission RateÂ Ã—Â Selling Price

Commission = (4/100) Ã— 15000

= Rs 600

Rafique paid a commission of Rs 600.

Amount received by Rafique = Selling Price â€“ Commission

Amount received = 15000 â€“ 600

= Rs 14400

âˆ´ The amount received by Rafique is Rs 14400.

**3. A farmer sold food grains for 9200 rupees through an agent. The rate of commission was 2%. How much amount did the agent get?**

**Solution:**

Given:

Selling Price = Rs 9200

Commission rate = 2%

By using the formula,

Commission = Commission RateÂ Ã—Â Selling Price

= (2/100) Ã— 9200

= Rs 184

âˆ´ The agent got a commission of Rs 184.

**4. Umatai purchased following items from a Khadi – Bhandar.
(i) 3 sarees for 560 rupees each.
(ii) 6 bottles of honey for 90 rupees each.
On the purchase, she received a rebate of 12%. How much total amount did Umatai pay?**

**Solution:**

Given:

Rebate = 15%

Cost of each saree = Rs 560

So, cost of 3 sarees = 3Â Ã—Â 560 = Rs 1680

Cost of each bottle = Rs 90

So, cost of 6 bottles = 6Â Ã—Â 90 = Rs 540

So, total cost of purchased items = 1680 + 540 = Rs 2220

Given rebate rate = 12%

By using the formula,

Rebate = Rebate RateÂ Ã—Â Cost Price

= (12/100) Ã— 2220

= Rs 266.40

Amount paid by Umatai = Total cost of purchase â€“ Rebate

= 2220 â€“ 266.40

= Rs 1953.60

âˆ´ The total amount paid by Umatai is Rs 1953.60.

**5.** **Use the given information and fill in the boxes with suitable numbers.
Smt. Deepanjali purchased a house for Rs 7,50,000 from Smt. Leelaben through an agent. Agent has charged 2% brokerage from both of them.**

**Solution:**

(1) Smt. Deepanjali paid = 7,50,000 Ã—Â 2/100

= 7,500 Ã— 2

= Rs 15,000 brokerage for purchasing the house.

(2) Smt. Leelaben paid brokerage of Rs 15,000

(3) Total brokerage received by the agent is = 15,000 + 15,000 = Rs 30,000

(4) The cost of house Smt. Deepanjali paid is = 7,50,000 + 15,000 = Rs 7,65,000

(5) The selling price of house for Smt.Leelaben is = 7,50,000 â€“ 15,000
