Question:

      A dishonest dealer sells his goods at the cost price and stills earns a profit of 35% by underweighting. What does he use for 2 kg?

Options:
A)

  1400 grams

B)

  1420 grams

C)

  1600 grams

D)

  1481.50 grams

Solution:

 

Gain% =  ErrorTrue weight- Error ×100   

     35=  x1000-x×100   

   35000 – 35x=100x

   35000 = 135 x

   x=  35000135     259.25   

Thus , he uses 1000 - 259.25 = 740.75 grams

   He uses 1481.50 kg for 2 kg weight
