If loss is 1/4 of selling price, the loss% is:

Let Selling Price = x, then loss= x/4Cost Price = Selling Price + Loss = 5x/4So, Loss% =[Loss/Cost Price] x 100 Loss% = [(x/4)/(5x/4)] x 100 = 20%

Ajay sells an article that costs him Rs. 400/- to Vijay at a profit of 25%. Vijay sells it to Sanjay making a profit of 10% on the amount Vijay paid to Ajay. How much does Sanjay pay?

Selling Price for Ajay = Cost Price + Gain==> 400+(25/100) x 400 = 500.This is cost price for Vijay. Selling price for Vijay = 500 + 10% of 500==> 500 +(10/100) x 500 = 550.So the amount Sanjay pays is 550.

A man buys an article for Rs 25.80 and sells it for Rs. 27.30. Find his gain percent.

Gain = Selling Price - Cost PriceGain = 27.30 - 25.80 = Rs 1.50

Gain% = (Gain/Cost Price) x100=(1.50/25.80) x 100 = 5.8%
