Question 5 & 6
Question 5: A man purchased a thing for Rs 120 and got a discount of 25%. What is the real price paid by him ?
FPSC IB AD 2017
The man was given discount on some marked price or price written on the item
Suppose Marked Price = x
So, sale price was set after giving a discount of 25 % on marked price ‘x’
This discount was subtracted from marked price to set final sale price
But SP = 120
So , actual price or marked price was 160Rs
Question 6: A man started a business with a capital of Rs 9000 and after 4 months another man joined him with a capital of Rs 2000 and then business goes on well. After one year the profit of Rs 2520 is earned. What is second man’s share ?

First man is doing business for complete one year and second man does business for 8 months !
First man’s investment for 12 months ;= 9000 x 12=108000
A second man’s investment for 8 months; = 12000 x 8= 96000
First man:Second man
Sum of ratios : 3+4 = 7
Now first man’s share
And second man’s share;
