Question

Ram adjusted his electronic weighing scale in a typical way. But he gives a discount of 10% in every transaction. His weighting scale shows 5 kg for 4 kg. What is the actual profit % when the displayed weight is 10 kg, if he sells the commodity at its cost price?


  1. 40%
  2. 12.5%
  3. 10%
  4.  –5%
  5. 50%


Solution

The correct option is B 12.5%

Let Ram buy 10 kg for Rs 100
Since 4kg shows 5 kg in weighting scale
when he sells 8 kg weighting scale shows 10kg find he gives 10% discount
So, he sold 8kg for Rs 90 and had bought if for Rs 80
Profit %=1080×100=12.5%
