### Discussion :: Profit and Loss

1. Some articles were bought at 6 articles for Rs. 5 and sold at 5 articles for Rs. 6. Gain percent is:

2.  A. 30% B.  33$$\frac{1}{3}$$% C. 35% D. 44%

Explanation :

Suppose, number of articles bought = L.C.M. of 6 and 5 = 30.

 C.P. of 30 articles = Rs [ $$\frac { 5} { 6 }$$ x 30] = Rs. 25.

 S.P. of 30 articles = Rs. $$\frac { 6 } { 5 }$$x 30 = Rs. 36.

 Gain % = $$\frac { 11 } { 25 }$$x 100 %=44%.
