A hawker sells oranges at a profit of 25 per cent. If he increases the selling price of each orange by 30 paisa, he earns a profit of 40%. Find the cost price and the initial selling price of each orange.
Let cost price = 100/-
Profit of 25% = Rs.125
After increasing the S.P of each orange, he earns a profit of 40%
So, profit = 140 /-
Initially profit is Rs.125/-
Different between the profits = 15
For 15 = 30 times
For 1 = 2 times
So initial S.P = Rs.125 * 2 = Rs.250
And C.P = Rs.100 * 2 = Rs.200
A person bought two watches for Rs.480. He sold one at a loss of 15% and the other at a gain of 19% and he found that each watch was sold at the same price. Find the cost price of the two watches.

Let the 2 watches are A and B.
So, 85% of A = 119% of B
Ratio between A and B is = 7:5
The whole parts is 12 parts
For 12 parts = Rs.480
Or, 1 part = Rs.40
Or, 7 parts = Rs.280 and 5 parts = Rs.200.
A sells a horse to B at a loss of 20% and B sells it to C at a loss of 25%. If C pays Rs.900 for it, at what price did A buy?
Let A buy it at Rs.100/-
A sells a horse to B at a loss of 20%
So, B buy at Rs.80/-
B sells to C at a loss of 25%
So, C buy at Rs.60
And, C pays Rs.900 for it
For 60 parts it is 900/-
For 100 parts it is 1500/-
So, A buy it for Rs.1500.
