what is the answerof the TRY THESE (down) on pg.123 of the lesson Comparing Quantities? i need a quick reply plz
1. Find the selling price (SP) if a profit of 5% is made on(a) a cycle of Rs 700 with Rs 50 as overhead charges.(b) a lawn mower bought at Rs 1150 with Rs 50 as transportation charges.(c) a fan bought for Rs 560 and expenses of Rs 40 made on its repairs.
Cost Price of cycle (CP) = Rs 700 + Rs 50 (overhead charges are added to give CP)= Rs 750Profit = 5%
Therefore, selling price of cycle(SP) = CP + Profit
= 750 + 5% of 750
Cost Price of lawn mover (CP) = Rs 1150 + Rs 50 (overhead charges are added to give CP)
= Rs 1200
Profit = 5%
Therefore, selling price of lawn mover(SP) = CP + Profit
= 1200 + 5% of 1200
