Question

A dishonest shopkeeper professes to sell pulse at his costume price but uses a false weight of 950 GM for each kilogram. Find his gain percent. 


Solution

1kg=1000gm
so,1000gm-950gm
50gm
therefore,the shopkeepers gain is 50gm
now,gain percent
=(gain/costprice)x100%
here the cost price means the total false weight
now,(50gm/950gm)x100%
=100/19%
=5.263%
