Question

A sells a bicycle to $$B$$ at a profit of $$20\%$$. $$B$$ sells it to $$C$$ at a profit of $$25\%$$. If $$C$$ pays Rs. $$225$$ for it, the cost price of the bicycle for $$A$$ is


A
Rs. 110

B
Rs. 120
loader
C
Rs. 125
loader
D
Rs. 150
loader

Solution

The correct option is D Rs. $$150$$
Let the C.P for $$A=$$ Rs. $$ x$$ 
Profit $$=20\%$$
Then S.P  for $$A$$ $$=\dfrac{120}{100}\times x=$$ Rs. $$\dfrac{12x}{10}$$
S.P. for $$A=$$ C.P. for $$B$$ $$=$$ Rs. $$\dfrac{12x}{10}$$
Profit $$=25\%$$
then S.P for $$B$$ $$=\dfrac{25}{100}\times \dfrac{12x}{10}=$$ Rs. $$\dfrac{3x}{2}$$
S.P. for $$B =$$ C.P. for $$C=$$ Rs. $$\dfrac{3x}{2}$$
According to the question, 
C.P for $$C=$$ Rs. $$225$$
$$\therefore \dfrac{3x}{2}=225$$
$$\Rightarrow x=\dfrac{225\times 2}{3}=$$ Rs. $$150$$
Hence, cost of the bicycle for $$A$$ is Rs. $$150$$.
