__Question 1.__ Sanket purchased 20 dozen notebook at Rs. 48 per dozen. He sold 8 dozen at 10% profit and remaining 12 dozen with 20% profit. What is his profit percentage in the transaction?

**Options:**

- 7.68
- 15
- 16
- 19.2
- None of these

**Answer: Option C**

- C.P of 20 dozen = Rs.(48 x 20) = Rs.960

C.P of 8 dozen = Rs. (48 x8) = Rs. 384.

C.P of 12 dozen =Rs. (960 – 384) = Rs. 576

Total S.P = Rs. (110/100 x 384 +120/100 x 576) = Rs.1113.60

∴ Profit % = (153.60/960 x 100)% =16%

__Question 2.__Hemant sold 10 sarees for a total profit of Rs. 460 and 12 sarees for a total profit of Rs. 144. At what profit per saree should he sell the remaining 20 sarees so that he gets an average profit of Rs. 18 per sarees?

- Rs 7.60
- Rs 7.80
- Rs 8.00

- Total profit required = Rs.(42 x 18) = Rs.756

Profit on 22 sarees = Rs. (460 + 144) = Rs. 604

Profit on 20 sarees = Rs. (756 – 604) = Rs. 152

Average profit on these sarees = Rs.(152/20) = Rs. 7.60

**Options:**

- Rs 10.04
- Rs 10.875
- Rs 12.80
- Rs 12.875
- None of these

**Answer: Option B**

- Total C.P = Rs. (120 x 110) =Rs. 13200.

Total S.P = Rs.[(30 x 110 + 30 x 12) + (75 x 110 + 75 x 14) + (15 x 110 - 15 x 7)

=Rs..14505

Average profit = Rs. (14505 – 13200) /120

= Rs. 1305/120

= 10.875
