Dear Student!

1.

Let the original cost price of the cycle be Rs *x*.

Selling price of cycle to Ravish

= Rs *x* – 28% of Rs *x*

∴ Cost price of cycle to Vineet =

Amount spent by Vineet on the cycle = Rs 1680

∴ Net cost price of cycle to Vineet

Selling price of cycle to Vineet = Rs 35910

Profit to Vineet =

We know that,

Thus, the original cost of cycle is Rs 42000.

2.

Let the cost price of the toy be Rs *x*.

Gain% = 12%

Selling price of the toy = Rs *x* + 12% of Rs *x* =

If the toy was sold for Rs 33 more, then

New selling price of the toy = Rs

Gain =

Thus, the cost price of the toy is Rs 1650.
