Sell price of 5 kg = Rs. (22 x 5) = Rs. 110.
(110  (28 + 3x)/(28 + 3x)) * 100 = 82  3x/28 + 3x = 1 / 10
820  30x = 28 + 3x
=> 33x = 792
=> x = 24

 1) 16%
 2) 12%
 3) 6%
 4) 30%

Show Answer Report Discussion in forumAnswer : 1) 16%
Solution : 2 : 3 = 2x : 3x
10 % of 2x = 10/100 * 2x = x/5
20 % of 3x = 20/100 * 3x = 3x/5
x/5 + 3x/5 = (x + 3x)/5
=> 4x/5
= (4x/5)/5x * 100 = 4x/25x * 100 = 16%
Short cut method:
2 : 3
200 : 300
in 200 = 10% > 20
in 300 = 20% > 60
20 + 60 = 80 % gain
= 80/500 * 100 = 16%
