Question

If the present petrol price is 50, then what is the new price when:

i) there is an increase of 20% on the original price?

ii) there is a decrease of 10% on the original price?


  1.  ₹60, 45

  2.  ₹75, 80

  3.  ₹45, 60

  4.  ₹80, 75


Solution

The correct option is A

 ₹60, 45


i) When there is an increase of 20%, the increase in price is 20100×50=10

Therefore, the new petrol price =50+10=60

ii) When there is a decrease of 10%, the decrease in price is 10100×50=5

Therefore, the new petrol price =(505)=45
