If 80% of a number added to 80 gives the result as the number itself, then the number is

Solution
Let the number be x.
According to the question,
80% 0f x+80=x
\(\Rightarrow \frac{x\times 80}{100}+80=x\)
⇒^{4x}⁄_{5}+80=x⇒^{x}⁄_{5}=80
⇒x=80×5=400
A person bought two articles A and B for Rs 5.000. He sold A at 20% profit and B at 10%loss. He thus gained 2% on his outlay. The cost price of A was

Solution
Let the CP of article A = Rs. x
∴ CP of article B = Rs. (5000  x)
According to the question,
120% of x + 90% of (5000  x)
= 102% of 5000
⇒ 120x+ 45000090x
= 51סס00
⇒ 30x = 510000450000
= 60000
\(\Rightarrow x=\frac{60000}{30}=Rs.2000\)
A sum of Rs 86, 700 is to be divided among A, B and C in such a manner that for every rupee that A gets, B gets 90 paise and for every rupee that B gets. C gets 110 paise. B’s share will be

Solution
When A gets 100 paise, B gets 90 Paise
When B gets 100 paise, C gets 110 paise
∴ When B gets 90 paise, C gets
\(\frac{110}{100}\times 90\)∴ A : B : C = 100 : 90 : 99
Sum of the ratios
= 100 + 90 + 99 = 289
∴ B' share = \(\left ( \frac{90}{289}\times 86700 \right )\)
= Rs. 27000
