**Percent profit earned by six different companies over the years.**

- If the profit earned by company B in the year 2012 was Rs.5 lacs, what was the income of the company in that year?
- Rs56.26 lacs
- Rs52.46 lacs
- Rs48.12 lacs
- Rs46.67 lacs

Answer: (d) Rs46.67 lacs

Solution: Let the expenditure of the company B in the year 2012 = Rs. X lacs

then, $$ \frac{5}{X} \times 100 = 12 $$ $$ X = \frac{5 \times 100}{12} $$ $$ X = 41.67 \ lacs $$ Hence, the income of the company B in the year 2012, $$ = (5 + 41.67) \ lacs $$ $$ = Rs46.67 \ lacs $$

Solution: Let the expenditure of the company B in the year 2012 = Rs. X lacs

then, $$ \frac{5}{X} \times 100 = 12 $$ $$ X = \frac{5 \times 100}{12} $$ $$ X = 41.67 \ lacs $$ Hence, the income of the company B in the year 2012, $$ = (5 + 41.67) \ lacs $$ $$ = Rs46.67 \ lacs $$

- What is the percentage rise in percent profit of company E in the year 2015 from the year 2010?
- 100%
- 60%
- 50%
- 30%

Answer: (a) 100%

Solution: Required percentage increase, $$ = \frac{16 - 8}{8} \times 100 $$ $$ = 100 \ \% $$

Solution: Required percentage increase, $$ = \frac{16 - 8}{8} \times 100 $$ $$ = 100 \ \% $$

- If the profit earned by the company A in the year 2013 was Rs.2 lacs, what was its expenditure in that year?
- Rs12.25 lacs
- Rs16.12 lacs
- Rs18.18 lacs

Answer: (c) Rs18.18 lacs

Solution: Let the expenditure of the company A in the year 2013 = Rs.X lacs

then, $$ \frac{2}{X} \times 100 = 11 $$ $$ X = \frac{2 \times 100}{11} $$ $$ X = Rs18.18 \ lacs $$

Solution: Let the expenditure of the company A in the year 2013 = Rs.X lacs

then, $$ \frac{2}{X} \times 100 = 11 $$ $$ X = \frac{2 \times 100}{11} $$ $$ X = Rs18.18 \ lacs $$

- 10.17%
- 12.22%
- 15.32%
- 16.25%

Answer: (a) 10.17%

Solution: The average percent profit of company C over all the year together, $$ = \frac{8 + 9 + 10 + 15 + 12 + 7}{6} $$ $$ = 10.17 \ \% $$

Solution: The average percent profit of company C over all the year together, $$ = \frac{8 + 9 + 10 + 15 + 12 + 7}{6} $$ $$ = 10.17 \ \% $$

- 1.2%
- 1.6%
- 1.8%
- 1.9%

Answer: (b) 1.6%

Solution: Required difference, $$ = 12 - \left[\frac{10 + 15 + 8 + 8 + 11}{5}\right] $$ $$ = 12 - 10.4 $$ $$ = 1.6 \ \% $$

Solution: Required difference, $$ = 12 - \left[\frac{10 + 15 + 8 + 8 + 11}{5}\right] $$ $$ = 12 - 10.4 $$ $$ = 1.6 \ \% $$
